Crime Prevention: Charities

Volume 458: debated on Thursday 29 March 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what discussions he has had with crime prevention charities ahead of the announcement to cut the annual grant to Crimestoppers by 10 per cent. (130150)

There has been no reduction in the annual grant to Crimestoppers. This charity is funded by the Crime Strategy Unit via a strategic partnership agreement (SPA) which commenced in December 2004 and is valid until March 2008. In March 2007 Crimestoppers were informed that they will be granted £900,000 for the financial year 2007-08 as specified in the SPA.
