As detailed in the recommendations.


The Cabinet Member for Housing provided an update on the Supporting People Programme in Flintshire and sought support for the Local Commissioning Plan (LCP) and Local Spend Plan (LSP).


The local authority was required to develop a 3 year Commissioning Strategy that would inform the priorities within the Regional Commissioning Strategy.  Local authorities in North Wales had developed 12 month Commissioning Plans to cover the transition period and allow time for reviewing of existing services, new developments and appropriate targeting of reductions.


The Commissioning Plan was appended to the report and detailed the proposals for how the grant would be allocated for the next year; this plan was set within the context of reduced funding.  This would be replaced by a longer term strategy which would details the Supporting People Commissioning intentions.


The report provided full details of the reductions and how those reductions would be managed.  Also detailed within the report were the national, regional and local developments and the LCP Priorities for 2014/15.


In response to a question from the Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Environment, the Chief Officer, Community and Enterprise explained that Local Solutions, who now delivered the services that had previously been delivered by Save the Family, remained in the same building but they were responsible for delivering the services to local people.




(a)       That the reductions to the Supporting People Grant be noted and the proposed approach to managing reductions be approved; and


(b)       That the Flintshire Local Commissioning Plan 2014-15 be approved.
