The Board received a report that provided members with a summary of non-recurrent funds available within the Public Health Grant.

It was explained that there was 500,000 of non recurrent funding available and it was suggested that this be used in areas of identified need. Specifically it was suggested that the resources be targeted at the shared priorities of giving every child the best start in life and/or addressing ill health within the context of health inequalities linked to deprivation.

The Board noted the discussion of this matter that had been held immediately before this meeting, during the Joint Health and Wellbeing Board and Partnership meeting.

The Board agreed that the funding be targeted at the following areas:

- early years intervention
- ill health prevention, relating to adults.

The Board also agreed that the available funding be broadly split 50/50 between these areas. The specific details of the areas and the final funding split to be agreed by the Board's Commissioning Groups.

Members noted that the Strategy had been developed by the Children and Young People's Health and Wellbeing Commissioning Group. The Strategy set out how the Council aimed to achieve its ambition for Early Help Services, with partners. The ambition was to ensure that high quality, accessible and evidence-based early help services were in place and targeted to the children and families who needed them most
