Non-profit Making Associations: Finance

Volume 485: debated on Tuesday 16 December 2008

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster how much funding the Office of the Third Sector is providing to regional Third Sector networks; and what the address is of each such network. (241594)

Figures for funding to regional third sector networks during 2008-09 will be available when the Cabinet Office annual report and accounts are published and laid before Parliament. I expect this to be before summer recess in 2009.

In 2007-08 direct funding from the Office of the Third Sector to regional third sector networks was through the Regional Infrastructure programme. This is a three year programme, from 2005 until March 2009. Recipients during 2007-08 were as follows:
