Departmental Grants

Volume 506: debated on Thursday 4 March 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department to which faith-based organisations his Department has made grants in each of the last five years; and what the (a) monetary value and (b) purpose of the grant was in each case. (317768)

The Home Office funds a wide range of organisations to deliver outcomes related to Home Office objectives. Although it is not always possible to tell from the information available to us whether organisations would regard themselves as faith-based, the information set out in the table is based on those organisations where it is clear they are, and consider themselves to be, faith-based.

The Department has made the following payments to faith-based organisations within the last five years:
