To consider the decision to award funding to The Horticulture Industry Scheme CIC.


The grant of £15,953 (or 30% of the project costs, whichever is the lower amount) to The Horticulture Industry Scheme CIC to continue its work with offenders in Thetford.

Reasons for the decision:

The grant application meets the criteria of the scheme and will enhance a project that has been successful in gaining European Social Fund support.  The grant will assist a second year of project delivery to take place during which time the CIC should be able to progress towards greater sustainability by increasing the income derived from its trading activities.  Because the project is demonstrating progress towards sustainability it is judged to be eligible for Breckland Match Funding.

Alternative options considered:

1)     Fully fund the application set out in the report

2)     Part fund the application set out in the report

3)     Do nothing.
