28/04/2022 - The Enhance Programme 2022/23

The Deputy Director of Adults and Health agreed to the following:


That LCC enter into an NHS Act Section 256 agreement to formalise the transfer of the £800,000 funding from Leeds Community Healthcare Trust to Leeds City Council


That LCC make a direct grant award of £800,000 to Leeds Older People’s Forum who will administrate and distribute the fund and manage the bidding process with Leeds third sector organisations


LCC will also be making a contribution of £98k to the Enhance programme.  This is coming from funding received through the Health Partnerships Team from the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities and Local Government to support people who are clinically vulnerable to Covid in March 2021 as discussed at the Winter at Risk Group chaired by Head of Regional Health Partnerships and programme lead for CEV.
