To seek approval to extend the service level agreement (SLA) for a further period of 12 months.
Community Action Fareham (CAF) is the local Council for Voluntary Services (CVS). CAF offers support to a range of community organisations providing services and activities to meet the needs of local residents.
The current Service Level Agreement (SLA) with Community Action Fareham expires on 31 March 2014, having been renewed on a six-monthly basis since September 2013.
This report proposes extending the SLA for a period of 12 months (1 April 2014 – 31 March 2015) as well as a number of measures to define and strengthen the operation of Community Action Fareham.
RESOLVED that the Executive agrees to:
a) extend the existing SLA for a further period of twelve months, until 31 March 2015;
b) a reduction of 2% in the Council’s grant to CAF, in line with the reduction implemented by Hampshire County Council;
c) ring-fence £10,000 of the grant funding for the establishment of an Enabling Fund to respond to emerging community need; and
d) delegate authority to the Executive Member for Leisure & Community to approve the award of the enabling funding for any initiative brought forward by CAF.
