Individual Support Orders and Intervention Orders: Finance

Volume 502: debated on Tuesday 8 December 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how much his Department has spent on (a) individual support orders and (b) intervention orders in each of the last three years. (301801)

The Home Office grant to the Youth Justice Board for prevention work has been £15 million for 2009-10, £18 million for 2008-09 and £21 million for 2007-08. This forms part of the overall Youth Justice Board budget of £32 million for evidence-based targeted prevention programmes such Youth Inclusion Support Panels. ISOs are one of the interventions funded from this budget.

The Home Office does not directly fund intervention orders. However, funding to tackle drugs related crime and antisocial behaviour is provided to local areas to deliver drug intervention programmes. These programmes are delivered through Drug Action Teams (DATs), using Criminal Justice Integrated Teams (CJITs) who adopt a case management approach to working with drug-misusing offenders, some of whom will be subject to intervention orders.
