Youth Services: Finance

Volume 465: debated on Tuesday 23 October 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how many youth projects in each London constituency received central Government funding in each of the last five years; and how much was allocated to youth projects in London in each of the last five years, broken down by constituency. (158843)

The Department for Children, Schools and Families does not hold information relating to volumes of projects or financial information relating to constituencies. The following tables show London borough allocations from 2003-04 for centrally managed programmes which fund youth projects in the local areas. These are Positive Activities for Young People (PAYP) holiday provision, the Neighbourhood Support Fund allocations from 2006-07 (prior to this NSF was administered by managing agents and the LA breakdown is not known), and from 2006-07 the new Youth Opportunity and Youth Capital Funds (YOF/YCF).

Notes:

1. The increase in 2005-06 is due to combining PAYP with the Uproject, a former lottery programme.

2. The drop in 2006-07 is due to the removal of general lottery funding contribution.
