CDC is currently contributing (£82k
annually) to a Community Advice Service delivered across West
Sussex, through a contract that will end in March 2022. The service
is currently provided by "Arun and Chichester Citizens Advice", and
"Citizens Advice in West Sussex North South East". Cabinet and
Council is asked to consider early commitment to future funding
through a Countywide Funding Partnership, to enable tendering of a
new contract for three or more years.
*RECOMMENDATION TO FULL COUNCIL:
That the Cabinet recommends to Council the continuation of the Funding Partnership to commission a Community Advice and Support Service across West Sussex for up to seven years from April 2022 with West Sussex County Council as the lead authority.
That the Cabinet delegates authority to the Director of Housing and Communities, following consultation with the Cabinet Member for Community Services, to agree to the Inter Agency Agreement, the specification and signing of the contract, and delegates the annual monitoring of performance to the Grants and Concessions Panel.
