Consultation on funding for local voluntary and community groups

Consultation on funding for local voluntary and community groups

Posted: Mon, 10 Feb 2020 12:00 by Jo Mitchell

Local voluntary and community sector groups in Derbyshire are being asked to help shape their future funding arrangements during a 12 week consultation.

Derbyshire County Council have launched a consultation into funding for the local voluntary and community sector (VCS) infrastructure organisations with a view to developing a fairer more consistent way of allocating money to support its ambitions and priorities. More »

They have already met with the infrastructure groups – umbrella organisations which offer information, support, guidance, training and funding advice to the local charitable sector – as well as health partners and district and borough councils, to develop future funding principles based on:

  • fairness and consistency
  • outcomes (measurable achievements)
  • long term sustainability

Derbyshire County Council now want as many people as possible across the county to take part in the consultation and give their views.

Derbyshire County Council Cabinet Member for Health and Communities Councillor Carol Hart said:

"We've already been out talking to infrastructure organisations to find out what they need from us to carry out their work in a sustainable way. Based on their feedback, we've come up with some ideas and we'd now like to hear from as many people as possible on what they think of our proposals."

Derbyshire County Council give grants of more than £3 million a year to local voluntary and charity groups carrying out valuable work for Derbyshire residents. A proportion of the funding supports the infrastructure organisations – often local council for voluntary service (CVS) groups.

The new proposals could see grants given out over 4 years instead of one, distributed along borough and district boundary lines and key performance indicators introduced.

A report on the outcome of the consultation is due back before Cabinet in the summer.

Read more about the proposals and fill in our online questionnaire.

The deadline for completed questionnaires is Thursday 30th April 2020. » Less
