That the Cabinet notes that additional costs have been incurred to set up the service and that officers were seeking to recover these costs by offsetting them against uncommitted grant income where this is feasible or making representation to the Welsh Government to recover any remaining balance.


That the Cabinet supports the proposal to establish a plan to transition residents from the crisis service to more sustainable alternative arrangements during the recovery phase based on the involvement of the community and ensuring local Members can play a full and active part in recovery planning activities.
