To note the possible funding gap in the 2020/21 budget and support the efforts of the Leader and officials to ensure appropriate funding options from the Welsh Government.

1. That it is willing to provide the necessary financial support to sustain the services of Cwmni Byw'n Iach initially until the end of the 2020/21 financial year.

3. That the Cabinet receives a specific report on the arrangements as part of reports to review the Council's budgets.
