Cuts

Portfolio: Health and Partnerships Portfolio

Description

Wider determinants – Home Improvement Agency - £15,000, the contribution would cease, reducing the provision of services. The aim of the service is to provide an integrated housing support service, by providing a single point of contact and seamless co-ordination of services, in order to enable those in need of support to maintain their independence, health and wellbeing in their chosen home for as long as possible. This aim will be achieved by assisting Service Users through the repair, adaptation or improvement process, so that the Service User is able to remain in their own home in a warm, safe, secure and accessible environment.

Reductions to Sexual Health and Contraception - Young people are the highest risk of STI’s Young people are the highest risk of pregnancy Young people are the most unlikely to access services Negative impact on 0-19 service and remaining service providers Sanctuary Scheme - Several of our most vulnerable families have worked with Sanctuary which has enabled them to remain in their homes. Disruption to family life Negative impact on emotional health and well-being Negative impact on schooling Negative impact on other services The health and well-being of children, young people and families is likely to be at risk of significant harm Public Health Other (S08)Home Improvement Agency - Significant impact on vulnerable families to fund own needs or go without. Reductions to Obesity funding - No services available to support obese children and families following NCMP screening. Proposals from DBC are unrealistic to vulnerable and hard to reach families Negative impact on 0-19 service to provide sustainable support. Negative impact on physical health of children, young people and families. Increased demand on remaining services. The future health and well-being of children and young people is likely to be at risk. Reductions to Multi Agency Risk Assessment Conference - Added pressures to other remaining services. Children, young people and families in Darlington are likely to be at greater risk of harm

For me as a GP all of the proposed public health reductions will have a negative impact
