LOCAL GOVERNMENT REVIEW – SHAPING DORSET UPDATE

Future of voluntary and community sector grants

There is a report going to the Shadow Dorset Executive Committee on 17 September 2018, regarding voluntary and community sector grants to be issued by the new Dorset Council.

The report recommendations are to roll the current arrangements with principal authorities forward into 2019/20 and undertake detailed reviews of the grants for the 2020/21 budget.  The only exception to this is the £6,000 annual grant provided to each of five town partnerships in West Dorset.  These grants are not provided elsewhere in Dorset and so it was considered inappropriate to continue with them in one area. Those partnerships have been informed of the proposals.

The report is available at  agenda item 10 at http://shadowcouncil.dorset.gov.uk/documents/g124/Public%20reports%20pack%2017th-Sep-2018%2016.00%20Shadow%20Executive%20Committee.pdf?T=10
