To seek approval to award a Discretionary Disabled Facilities Grant beyond the amount of £10,000


The Portfolio Holder authorises the approval of a Discretionary Disabled Facilities Grant for circumstances outside the current policy

Reasons for the decision:

The priorities within the current Gedling Plan include:
•Reducing hardship and provide support to the most vulnerable
•Improve health and wellbeing
Approving the grant will directly improve safety, health and wellbeing for Mr Bradbury.

Alternative options considered:

Consideration has been given to sourcing charitable funding but this is unlikely and could take a number of months to resolve. The family have little funds to allocate to the project due having already spent money helping Mr Bradbury to live a safer and more independent life.
