This report sets out the services provided by the Tricycle Theatre through a Service Level Agreement, linked to a grant from the Council, the benefits to Brent residents of the partnership and recent performance levels. In January 2012 the Executive decided that grants to the voluntary sector would be for three years and this report proposes moving the grant to the Tricycle to a similar arrangement using a stepped approach.

Minutes:

The report from the Strategic Director, Environment and Neighbourhoods set out the services provided by the Tricycle Theatre through a Service Level Agreement (SLA), linked to a grant from the council, the benefits to Brent residents of the partnership and recent performance levels. In January 2012 the Executive decided that grants to the voluntary sector would be for three years and the report proposed moving the grant to the Tricycle to a similar arrangement using a stepped approach. Councillor Mashari (Lead Member, Environment and Neighbourhoods) referred to the activities the Tricycle Theatre agreed in the 2013/14 SLA which included 400 sessions for organised school groups, sessions with young people living on the Traveller site and other workshops. Consideration was also being given to emphasising employment opportunities and progress was being made in attracting new audiences.

 

RESOLVED:

 

(i)         that the productive partnership to date between the council and the Tricycle Theatre and its benefits to Brent residents be noted;

 

(ii)        that the initial two year grant cycle to run from 1 April 2013 – 31 March 2015 for the Tricycle Theatre worth £198,000 per annum and to a three year grant cycle thereafter be approved;

 

(iii)       that the grant to the Tricycle Theatre be managed through a Service Level Agreement and be dependent on delivery of agreed performance targets set by the council.
