Decision status: Recommendations Approved
The Committee considered a report of the Strategic Director of Adult Care and Wellbeing which provided the Committee with an update on 2024/5 business planning, an analysis of the underlying financial pressures to be carried forward into the 2024/25 financial year.
RESOLVED UNANIMOUSLY: That the Adult Health and Social Care Policy Committee:-
1. Note the changes to the Committee’s budget plan since the November update and the proposals being brought forward to close the 2024/25 budget gap.
2. Note that £2.8m more Social Care Grant (ringfenced for Adult and Childrens Social Care) than assumed in the Council’s planning has been received but £4.9m less of unringfenced ‘Services Grant received. To note that this has resulted in a subsequent increase of £2m Social Care Grant to Adult Health and Social Care Policy Committee but a decrease of £0.9m corporate funding to Adult Health and Social Care Policy Committee.
3. Note the impact of funding changes on the 2023/24 carry forward position and recovery plan for 2024/25.
4. Note the recovery plan to mitigate underlying demand and cost pressures in 2024/ 2025.
The Committee noted the report.
