To update the Cabinet member for Health, Wellbeing and Social Care on the forthcoming ceasing of lottery funding for the Re:Fit project and to seek funding to maintain a reduced service.
RECOMMENDED that the Cabinet Member:
1. Approve a funding contribution towards the Pompey in the Community Re:Fit worker post of £29,000 p.a. (total: £58,000) for 2 years from 01 November 2019.
2. Approve that in the first instance, funding for this for this project would be identified from any underspend in the current financial year Public Health Grant. In the following financial years, opportunities to fund this expenditure within the relevant year's budget would be sought. Should any funding shortfall be identified, then the funding from the Public Health reserve can be utilised.
