Preventing Violent Extremism Community Leadership Fund

Volume 507: debated on Wednesday 17 March 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government on what projects and programmes Preventing Violent Extremism funds will be spent in Northamptonshire in 2009-10. (321647)

As my hon. Friend will be aware, this Department has, since April 2008, funded local authorities to undertake Prevent work through Area Based Grant, which in line with Government policy is not ring-fenced. This means that local authorities themselves decide how to support and deliver a diverse set of projects and programmes at local level with the Prevent funding provided by this Department. Funding is provided at a unitary or district level. Northampton borough council is receiving a total of £443,122 from 2008-09 to 2010-11, as follows:

£

2008-09

105,000

2009-10

143,292

2010-11

194,830

The local authority will be able to provide specific information on which projects and programmes are being funded.
