The Board received a report of the Executive Director – Adult Services, which presented the Voluntary Sector Funding Grant allocations for 2023/24.


Halton Borough Council had been awarding direct grants to local voluntary and charitable organisations for a number of years.  The opportunity to receive a grant was advertised on the Council website and applications were invited.  Applications were then assessed against key criteria, as set out in the report.  Recommendations were agreed by a panel consisting of the Executive Board Member with Portfolio responsibility for the Voluntary Sector and Officers.


Following the panel's assessment, the recommendations for allocations were presented in paragraph 3.3, from an available budget of £226,640.


RESOLVED:  That the Board approves the grant allocations as outlined in the report.
