As detailed in the recommendations.
Councillor Jones introduced the Double Click Social Enterprise – Progress Report which provided information on the Double Click as a Social Enterprise.
Double Click had progressed greatly as a fully independent Social Enterprise, offering increased employment and training opportunities for all staff including people with mental health issues.
Significant external lottery funding had been secured and as a result Double Click had purchased state of the art equipment that supported the development of the business.
The Chief Officer (Social Services) explained that Flintshire County Council contributed £110,000 to Double Click. As that amount had not increased over the past two years, it was effectively a cost reduction, taking inflation and other factors into account.
(a) That the progress achieved after 2 years be recognised; and
(b) That Cabinet continue to support and promote Double Click as a social enterprise.
