Reasons for decision


Cabinet was pleased at its record of being a long-term supporter of the Voluntary Sector. Cabinet’s decision to agree a range of grants allowed for Hillingdon’s vibrant voluntary sector to provide a range of services that compliment or are in addition to those provided by the Council.


Whilst agreeing to the Council’s contribution to the London Councils Grant Scheme, Cabinet expressed its wish to see Hillingdon and other outer London Boroughs benefit more from the scheme than at present.


Alternative options considered and rejected


Cabinet could have made changes to the recommendations or rejected them.
