Family Intervention Projects: Finance

Volume 498: debated on Thursday 29 October 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how much funding from the public purse has been allocated to family intervention projects in each of the next three years. (294428)

The Government allocated £35.5 million for family intervention projects in 2009-10 and are planning to allocate £57.1 million Government funding in 2010-11, an increase of 61 per cent. In addition there is anticipated match funding of £9.5 million from Registered Social Landlords, Housing Associations and Youth Offending Teams. Departmental budgets, and therefore the funding for Family Intervention Projects, have yet to be determined beyond March 2011. Decisions will be made following Spending Review discussions once the Department’s settlement is agreed.
