To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster how many people have been assisted through the National Youth Volunteering Service; how many regional outlets have been set up; and what proportion of the £100 million budget has been spent. (142596)

The independent youth-led charity v has created nearly 120,000 volunteering opportunities for young people.

In addition to the grant funded and match funded projects, v has commissioned 20 teams based within local communities with the aim of creating a further 22,800 local opportunities over the next two years.

A detailed breakdown of expenditure will be in v’s annual report which will be published later this year.
