County Councillor report:
Norfolk County Council (NCC) is asking parents, who are eligible, to register for free school meals before 21st July. This will allow the children to have food vouchers over the summer holidays. It will also help the school access additional funding to support the children through the Pupil Premium.
Norfolk carers are invited to apply for a Wellbeing Pack through Carers Matter Norfolk, I’m told the PPE is useful and the chocolates are very nice. For more information go to: https://carersmatternorfolk.org.uk/free-wellbeing-packs/ or call 0800 0831148.
Ferrovial Construction have been awarded the contract to build the Norwich Western Link. They are a leading international construction and engineering company. Ferrovial will work alongside the project team at NCC, starting straight away. For more information go to: www.norfolk.gov.uk/nwl
NCC are already looking at budgets for 2022/23. There is a £39m funding gap which we are working with Central Government to address. We are looking for better long term funding, particularly for Adult Social Care but also generally so that we can make long term decisions.
