Additional Funding for Front Line Advice Services


The Head of Community Development and Leisure presented the above report, previously circulated to Members.  The purpose of the report was to inform Members of additional funding which the Department for Communities (DfC) has allocated towards support services for Front Line Advice Services.


                        Councillor McGinley expressed his endorsement of the report.


                        Councillor Tierney recalled that a similar report had been presented to the Committee last year. He expressed concern that Council was only being allocated these monies at the end of the financial year and felt that additional funding should be requested from the Department of Communities.


The Committee


Recommended       That Members note the contents of the report and accept the additional funding of £14,173.96 provided by Voluntary and Community Division for allocations to those organisations currently contracted by Council to provide Advice Services within the Derry City and Strabane District Council Area.
