Decision Maker: Mayor and Cabinet

Decision status: For Determination

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: No


Having considered an officer report, and a presentation by the Mayor, and the

Chair of the Safer, Stronger Communities Select Committee, the Mayor and

Cabinet agreed that:


(1) the progress on agreeing the ward based priorities for the NCIL

programme be noted;


(2) the process through which the borough-wide priorities have been

developed be noted; and


(3) In regard to the allocation of the Borough-wide NCIL funding:


£100,000 be allocated to the development of Council borough-wide Air Quality

initiatives that promote community involvement;


an open call for projects is run alongside the ward based process with the

following priorities:


initiatives that seek to support local community groups to contributing to

tackling crime and anti-social behaviour


provision of high-quality mentoring services and those designed to keep

Lewisham’s children and young people safe from exploitation, violence and

serious youth crime


support for people with learning disabilities and/or issues with mental health to

find employment opportunities in order to identify projects for which the

remainder of the fund may be allocated


such funding should support services that are borough-wide, as far as

possible, but also provide extra focus on the most deprived wards in the

borough as defined by the Indices of Multiple Deprivation.
