Background Papers:
Is Decision District Wide
Decision Made
That an additional £12,000 per annum to fund  the Disability Advice Service to provide information, advice and support on all aspects of living with a disability to disabled people in the former Suffolk Coastal area, and a small increase in grant funding of £1,000 per year for Disability Advice North East Suffolk which provides services in the former Waveney area be approved.
Reason for Decision
Currently, ESC is funding independent information, advice and support for residents with disabilities in the north of the District but not funding equivalent provision in the south of the District. Given the impact of the pandemic on people with disabilities and the increase in demand seen by both DANES and DAS, it was clear that this investment will enable a priority group in East Suffolk to continue to receive tailored, targeted support.
