To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families with reference to the Home Department's together we can end violence against women and girls strategy, how much his Department plans to spend on family intervention projects in (a) 2009-10, (b) 2010-11 and (c) each of the subsequent three years; and from what budget such expenditure will be drawn. (305311)

The Government allocated £35.5 million for family intervention projects in 2009-10 and are planning to allocate £57 million Government funding in 2010-11. Expenditure is being drawn from the Department for Children, Schools and Families, Home Office, Ministry of Justice, Communities and Local Government and Department of Health budgets. 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.
