Tips for panel members

Tips for Panel Members

  • The funding is limited and we need to ensure that Grants awarded represent value for money

  • Will the activity or scheme be well attended? Is there any feedback to suggest that attendance has been good in the past?

  • To ensure that the Short Breaks funding can stretch as far as possible, items such as food and drink, transport, and expenses are not considered. See guidance notes.

  • Do we know how many children will be able to attend the scheme or activity?

Questions and Answers

(The following slides includes questions asked at the Provider Forum on September 16th, 2013)


Questions and answers

Questions and Answers

Q. How much funding is available to each local panel and how can we find out?

A. We put our available budget into a calculation sheet that takes into account the population of children in each area, and gives weighting to deprivation, rural factors, and disability (using SEN information). This is usually ready for panels to use in November.

Q. How will local panels affect activities where people come from all over Hampshire to attend?

A. We reserve a proportion of the budget for this type of activity and have a central panel for ‘All of Hampshire’.


Questions and answers1

Questions and Answers

Q. Any chance the Short Breaks funding will be extended past the age of 18-19?

Activities can be funded for 0-19 year olds. There are no plans to extend this at present, but many providers continue to offer activities using other funding, which we know is appreciated by young people and families.

Q. How can I save a copy of my online application form?

A. Your applications can be ‘saved for later’ during completion. Please follow the instructions on the form to save a copy.


Questions and answers2

Questions and Answers

Q. If we cover more than one area i.e. Havant and East Hampshire, how do we apply?

Please put in a separate application for each area you wish to provide activities in, so each local panel can consider it. If you need to you can discuss your particular service with the Short Breaks team.

Q. There is very little time to network/chat to/meet other providers at these forums.

A. Thanks for the comment – we know this is really important. We will include some more time for this at our next Forum. Please also use your local Providers Forum for this too.


Questions and answers3

Questions and Answers

Q. Shouldn’t grant forms ask how many children with a statement of Special Educational Needs (SEN) attend the clubs, in order for panels to take this into account?

A. We ask how many disabled children are expected to attend the activity in Question 9 of the form (also see Guidance notes).

Importantly, not all children with disabilities need or want a SEN Statement, but they might still attend clubs/activities and need additional support. The target group for our short breaks funding is Gateway Card holders, more information at www.hants.gov.uk/shortbreaks/gatewaycard.htm . We ask current activity providers to tell us how many Gateway Card holders attended in their monitoring returns.


Questions and answers4

Questions and Answers

Q. How far can panels go in recommending how money is spent?

A. The panel makes recommendations which are subject to a decision by the Lead Councillor for Children’s Services (see earlier slide). The Panel often recommends prioritising funding for one activity and not another – this recommendation must be followed. The Panel may also have other suggestions as part of the recommendation, for example a change to parental charge amounts, which should be taken seriously and explored further. For some large applications, the Short Breaks team would meet with the provider to discuss further how recommendations could be implemented, after the panel.


Questions and answers5

Questions and Answers

Q. Can you apply for both over £5k and under £5k at the same time for different activities?

A. No, if you are putting in a large ‘over £5,000’ application then all proposed activities should be included on this application. The panel would expect this application to include all your plans for the year ahead. Please contact the Short Breaks team if you need to discuss your service.
