To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills what funding is available for Home-Start in the Cotswolds; and if he will make a statement. (133888)

The Department does not directly fund Home-Start in the Cotswolds. The DfES has supported the national body, Home-Start UK since 2001 and is providing a strategic grant of £2.73 million in the current 2007-08 financial year. The grant to Home-Start UK is specifically to support capacity building activities of Home-Start UK services in England including national and regional staffing, training, and dissemination of resources to support the coverage of local scheme home visiting services.
