Grant allocations to community and voluntary organisations

17/02/2015 - Grant allocations to community and voluntary organisations_ Scrutiny Report

The Scrutiny Officer submitted a report (previously circulated, now appended) which detailed comments from the Scrutiny Committee on the council’s grant allocation for 2015/16.


Cllr Simmons, Chair of the Scrutiny Committee presented the report.


The City Executive Board resolved to AGREE:

1. To work with OCVA to improve outreach and engagement activities with diverse community and voluntary groups, with a focus on building capacities and supporting bid-writing.


2. To consider providing a greater separation between grants allocated to smaller, localised community groups and those that seek to achieve wider community benefits.
