Charities

Volume 485: debated on Tuesday 16 December 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Health to which charities his Department has provided funding of more than £100,000 in each of the last three years; and how much was provided to each. (242426)

Information on all departmental funding to charities is not available in the format requested from central records and could be provided only at disproportionate cost.

Information is available on funding through the Department's two main grant funding schemes for charities: Section 64 General Scheme of Grants and Opportunities for Volunteering, as well as a one-off scheme for funding to hospices. The following table shows grant awards of more than £100,000 per year through these schemes for 2006-07, 2007-08 and 2008-09. This list is compiled from local records and is not exhaustive.

Funding over £100,000 per year through Section 64 and OFV 2006-07 to 2008-09
