As detailed in the recommendations.
The Leader and Cabinet Member for Finance provided details of the new procedures for payment of Grants to Third Sector Organisations from the Council’s Community Chest Fund.
Members of the Voluntary Sector Grants Panel had agreed that in future its role would be transferred to the Flintshire Local Voluntary Council (FLVC) who with one Councillor and one Officer would make recommendations on Grants to the Chief Executive.
The Leader’s Scheme of Delegation of Executive Functions contained in the Constitution would need to be updated to reflect transferring the work of the Voluntary Sector Grants Panel to the FLVC supported by one Member and one Officer and there was also a need for the Leader or Cabinet to appoint the Flintshire Member to form part of the new arrangements. The Leader and Cabinet Member for Finance suggested Councillor David Wisinger, who was Chair of the existing Panel, as the Member to serve on the Panel which was supported.
(a) That the applications for funding by Third Sector Organisations from the Council’s Community Chest Fund be processed by Flintshire Local Voluntary Council (FLVC);
(b) That decisions on funding be made by the Chief Executive after considering recommendations from a Panel comprising two representatives of FLVC together with a Member and an Officer of the Council; and
(c) That Councillor David Wisinger be the Member to serve on the new Panel.
