This session brings participants up to date with the development of the Local Community Fund programme and how it will roll out over the next few months. The main focus of this session will develop more specific, detailed outcomes on the Community Safety theme, which will form the basis for the funding bids organisations will be making.
The session will take the higher level discussions we have had so far about this funding programme to the detailed discussion of what organisations will be trying to achieve and the activities they need to be developing.
Previous funding from the Council has been quite clearly linked to service areas. The themes in the Local Community Fund do not. They are cross-cutting and all include priorities from at least two service areas. It is therefore important that you look at all of the themes to see which priorities link to the activities your organisations provide or might be able to provide.
The Community Safety Theme priorities are:
Priority: Reduction in the exploitation of children and young people, and vulnerable groups
• Increase the extent to which young people feel safe (Children's Social Care)
• Reduction in the number of children and young people, and vulnerable groups being exploited. (Children's Social Care)
Priority: Improving the perception of young people in the community
New priority - outcomes to be developed
Priority: Services for people affected by domestic violence
• Increase the extent to which young people affected by DVSA feel safe (Children's Social Care)
• Increase the extent to which families affected by domestic violence feel safe (Children's Social Care)
A light working lunch will be available
