Neighbourhood Wellbeing Grants Update

Decision Maker: Audit, Risk and Governance Committee

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Purpose:

An update on monitoring activity relating to the Neighbourhood Wellbeing Grants awarded in 2016/17

Decisions:

Josh Mynott, Democratic and Member Services Manager, presented an update on the monitoring activity in relation to the Neighbourhood Wellbeing Grants awarded in 2016/17.

 

It was highlighted that since the agenda had been published, additional information had been received. There had now been some contact with all recipients of the grant apart from 1 who had received £1,000. This was equivalent to 0.2% of the total amount of grant funding issued. It was noted that this recipient had since ceased operations.

 

Contact had also been made with an additional 2 organisations and the requested paperwork was anticipated. Partial monitoring information had been received for a further 5 organisations. In total this equated to less than 3% of the grant funding issued. An update would be provided on the progress of the remaining groups to members of the committee outside of the Committee meeting.

 

Thanks were expressed to the Democratic Services team for their work in tracking the recipients of the funding.

 

The Chair moved that press and members of the public be excluded from the remainder of the discussion of this item on the grounds that there would be a likely disclosure of exempt information as defined in the appropriate paragraph of Part I of Schedule 12A to the Local Government Act 1972.

 

Resolved: That the press and members of the public be excluded from the meeting during consideration of the remainder of this item and item 19 (as notified on the agenda) on the grounds that there would be a likely disclosure of exempt information as defined in the appropriate paragraph of Part I of Schedule 12A to the Local Government Act 1972. It was considered that in all the circumstances the public interest in maintaining the exemption outweighed the public interest in disclosing the information.

 

(Exempt information as defined in Paragraph 3 of Part 1 of Schedule 12A to the Local Government Act, 1972.  It was considered that in all the circumstances of the case the public interest in maintaining the exemption outweighed the public interests in disclosing the information.)

 

The names of the organisations that had yet to provide monitoring information were shared with the committee.
