To approve and accept additional government grant funding to provide enhanced substance misuse services and to fulfil statutory requirements of the drug strategy.
a) Approval is given to accept additional government grant funding to provide enhanced substance misuse services in Herefordshire and to fulfil statutory requirements of the national drug strategy From Harm to Hope; and
Delegated authority is given to the Director of Public Health, to accept further funding grants from Office for Health Improvement and Disparities towards substance misuse services associated with the 10-year Harm to Hope national drug strategy
Alternative options considered:
1. Not accept the grant funding. This is not recommended as these grants have a significant impact on the health of the at-risk population group and being able to access the treatment and support they need. It would also impact on statutory responsibilities to deliver on the drugs strategy locally.
