Eliminating Food Insecurity: Access to Food Partnership update pdf icon PDF 175 KB

This report provides an update on the work of the BCP Access to Food Partnership.  There is much to celebrate in what the partnership has so far achieved, and local community partners are demonstrably helping families to build more food resilience.  However, the challenge is growing – although the BCP area has some outstanding food support, Sheffield University research suggests people seriously struggle to afford food in BCP, which attracted negative local press coverage.   In addition, rising food and fuel prices combined with changes in universal credit going into the winter will mean more residents are likely to struggle with access to food.  Therefore, the Board are asked to redouble their efforts to collaborate on communicating key messages around finding help within and across all statutory partners, and to invest in the continuation of the partnership beyond March 2022.

Hospital Discharge Programme Funding pdf icon PDF 139 KB

At the June Health and Wellbeing Board the council and CCG committed to bring a full report on Hospital Discharge Programme (HDP) funding to the October Board.


However, the reconciliation of the funding for April to September 2021 is not yet available therefore cannot be shared at this meeting.


On 6th September 2021 the Government confirmed, via a press release, the extension of the HDP funding for a further six months. The allocation for Dorset Integrated Care System is £8.889m.


The Pan Dorset Home First Board continues to review options and service models to meet the significant challenge it faces in supporting people with a swift and safe discharge from hospital. There remains significant financial concern and workforce pressures despite the additional funding being made available. The Home First Board have engaged Impower as a strategic partner to assist in developing a plan to support the changes needed to improve our position.
