The report advised that the 2020/21 budget allocated from the General Fund and the Paisley Common Good Fund of £62797 for this Local Partnership had been awarded to local groups. In addition, £24,095 had been awarded to local youth groups from the Celebrating Renfrewshire Fund.

The report also provided feedback from 18 local groups that had received funding in 2020/21 on the success of their projects and the benefits delivered to local communities.  It was noted that efforts continued to encourage more recipients of awards in 2020/21 to provide feedback.

It was acknowledged that the Covid-19 pandemic and resultant lockdown restrictions had affected the ability of groups to pursue projects and spend their allocated grant funding during 2020/21. Provision had been made to allow groups to carry forward grant funding into 2021/22 and, it was highlighted that an underspend of £5,300 from the General Fund had been carried forward to 2021/.

DECIDED:  That the report and feedback be noted.
