市政廳收緊腰帶,志願部門資金受到擠壓

懷特島議會已經告訴懷特島社區行動組織,它不應該繼續期待每年獲得78,000英鎊的撥款。

理事會說它需要每年節省28,000英鎊。

鎮和教區議會以及社區團體被要求介入,以幫助填補資金缺口。

通過志願社區和社會企業(VCSE)支持合同,提供資金幫助支持一個組織實現其慈善目標,並協助當地衛生和護理部門。

根據地方民主報告服務,自2018年以來,該合同一直由懷特島社區行動組織持有。

社區行動組織曾幫助島上的Covid大流行病和疫苗接種工作,重新安置烏克蘭難民,並經營島嶼社區風險投資有限公司和紐波特的河邊中心。

通過其島嶼社區風險公司,它經營商店、郵局和設施,包括Godshill村商店、Scarrots Lane麵包店和Brading、Wootton和Totland的外展服務。

自2012年以來,VCSE合同已經到位,並提供了超過70萬英鎊的資金來支持社區組織。

議會發言人表示,由於目前正處於下一財政年度的預算制定階段,因此尚未就任何已經到期的合同價值做出決定。


The Isle of Wight Council has told Community Action Isle of Wight it should not continue to expect to receive £78,000 a year in grants.

The council has said it needs to make annual savings of £28,000.

Town and parish councils and community groups are instead being asked to step in to help plug the funding gap.

Through the Voluntary Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) support contract, money is given to help support an organisation achieve its charitable aims and assist in the local health and care sector.

The contract has been held by Community Action Isle of Wight since 2018, according to the Local Democracy Reporting Service.

Community Action has helped with the island's Covid pandemic and vaccination effort, rehoming Ukrainian refugees and runs Island Community Ventures Ltd and the Riverside Centre in Newport.

Through its Island Community Ventures, it operates shops, post offices and amenities including the Godshill Village Shop, Scarrots Lane Bakery and outreach services in Brading, Wootton and Totland.

The VCSE contract has been in place since 2012 and provided more than £700,000 to support community organisations.

An council spokesperson said no decision had been made in relation to the value of any contracts which have expired as they are currently in the budget-setting phase for the next financial year.
