Supporting People Local Commissioning Plan
Flintshire County Council's Cabinet will be asked to approve the Grant Spend Plan for 2017/18 for the Supporting People Programme when it meets on 14 February.
In 2012, the Welsh Government created the Supporting People Programme Grant. This grant funds the provision of services that enable vulnerable people to gain and retain independence by remaining in their own home.
The Supporting People Local Commissioning Plan 2016-18 for the Supporting People Programme Grant has been subject to significant reductions between 2013 and 2016. However, the grant has been protected in the 2017/18 financial year, providing an opportunity for the Supporting People Team to continue its work with providers.
Flintshire County Council's Cabinet Member for Housing, Councillor Helen Brown, said,
"I am delighted that the Supporting People Programme Grant has been protected in 2017/18. This gives reassurance that our Supporting People Team will be able to continue the great work they have been doing with partners around important issues like domestic abuse, housing support and community care.'
