Council agrees to lead MEAAP ‘crises’ fund

Thursday, 29 June 2017

Council agrees to lead MEAAP ‘crises’ fund thumbnailAlliance councillor, Gerardine Mulvenna, proposed that the council takes the lead on the ‘crises’ fund.

MID and East Antrim Borough Council is to lead and administer a 'crises' fund to help support an organisation providing much needed assistance to many older people in the area.
The move is in response to a request from Mid and East Antrim Agewell Partnership (MEAAP) that council lead an approach to community planning partners to part fund their core costs for the next three financial years, from July 2017 to March 2020 at a cost of £405,557.
Although MEAAP received an award of £998,145 from The Dunhill Medical Trust to deliver a new three-year programme, Involving Many to Prescribe Alternative Care Together (IMPACT), they had not secured funding to continue to deliver their core programme, 'Ageing Well and Reaching Out'.
In response council previously agreed that the Chief Executive, Anne Donaghy, would write to seek financial support from a range of partners to assist for the period July 2017 to the end of March 2018 and bring back a proposal.
