Voluntary Work: Young People

Volume 458: debated on Thursday 22 March 2007

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what role his Department plans in the vcashpoint scheme organised by the National Youth Volunteering Organisation. (128894)

The national youth volunteering organisation, v, is funded with up to £100 million, including a fund available to match contributions from business. As part of the match fund, HM Treasury allocated £0.5 million for v for the vcashpoint scheme in 2006-07, matching the equivalent contribution from HSBC.

HM Treasury plays no other role in relation to vcashpoint.
