20/03/2019 - Golden Tickets for parents in receipt of Universal Credit for 2 year nursery funding ref: 5831    Recommendations Approved

Decision Maker: Assistant Director Education, Development and Skills

Decision published: 20/03/2019

Effective from: 20/03/2019

Decision:

To award a ‘Golden Ticket’ to parents of 2 year old children in receipt of universal credit identified through DWP lists.

The scheme would start for children eligible for a 2 year nursery place from September 2019 and run for 12 months in the first instance.

The impact would be evaluated after one year to check on numbers and % increase in take-up of 2 year places

There were 18 children on the last DWP list and this will increase slowly as benefit recipients change to UC. There would potentially be 25-30 on the DWP list in September 2019.

All on the list are eligible when the list first appears but may lose eligibility over time.

To minimize this risk there will be a two week time scale (expiry date) on the Golden Ticket after which time a parent will need to apply online in the usual way.

14/03/2019 - Domestic Abuse Strategy 2019-2022 ref: 5816    Recommendations Approved

To approve the multi-agency Domestic Abuse Strategy for Herefordshire 2019-2022 and governance arrangements for implementation of the strategy.

 

Domestic abuse is a complex and pervasive issue which cannot be addressed fully by any single organisation. The overall purpose of the strategy is to provide direction to partner organisations on how they can work collaboratively to prevent, identify and respond to domestic abuse.

 

The strategy builds upon learning from the former 2014-2017 strategy adopted in 2014. It includes a shared vision, priorities and outcomes developed collaboratively with partner organisations and service users, updated national and local context and clarified governance arrangements to ensure delivery of the strategy.

The vision of the strategy is that domestic abuse is unacceptable to people and communities in Herefordshire.

 

There are four priorities under the shared vision:

·         Priority 1 – Prevention: The aim is that individuals and communities understand domestic abuse and the harm it causes and have the skills to build, and a culture that supports, healthy relationships.

 

·         Priority 2 – Provision of service: The aim is that when domestic abuse is disclosed, identified or reported, those affected by domestic abuse can access timely and effective information, advice and support.

 

·         Priority 3 – Partnership working: The aim is to work together across organisations in an efficient and effective way to prevent, and protect those experiencing, domestic abuse, ensuring that organisational barriers do not have impact on those affected by domestic abuse.

 

·         Priority 4 – Pursuing perpetrators: The aim is that the tools available are used effectively and consistently and those experiencing domestic abuse see the police and criminal and civil legal systems as working to protect them and their children.

The Community Safety Partnership (CSP) will be responsible for strategic delivery and leadership of the strategy. The CSP will task the multi-agency Domestic Abuse Delivery Group (DADG) to develop and deliver annual action plans to implement the strategy. The action plans will need to take account of plans, opportunities and resources available within each partner organisation. Successful delivery of the action plans, and subsequently the strategy, will depend on the continued commitment and engagement from partner organisations.

If these schemes are not progressed the objectives of the SWTP will not be met.

 

The South Wye Transport Package comprises the Southern Link Road and a complementary package of active travel measures. The South Wye Transport Package Options Refinement Report contained in Appendix 1 of this report describes the selection of this preferred package and outlines how a range of active travel measures has been considered, consulted upon publicly and refined according to feedback and technical appraisal of how well each of the schemes performed against package objectives. The report proposes which active travel elements should be included in business case for the scheme to ensure a robust case for funding can be made and confirms that other active travel measures will be considered for future delivery as other funding sources become available.
