Decision details


Decision Maker: Finance and Resources Committee

Decision status: Recommendations Approved


The Committee considered a grant aid request from the Canalside Heritage Centre and it was queried whether the organisation had applied to other bodies for grants. It was further queried as to the Centre’s use of volunteers and whether these had been used judiciously. It was suggested that any grant would be accompanied by a service level agreement which would also consider historical issues such as staffing numbers and the size of the organisation’s volunteer base.
