The allocation of funds to the Probation Trust Programme has been managed on an annual basis. The annual differences in allocation reflect the changes to the scale and scope of the programme in each of the three years.

Throughout its lifetime the programme has consistently come in under budget; this is as a consequence of in-year changes to the scope of the programme.

The total budget allocation for the Probation Trust Programme is £11.095 million; the latest estimated cost over the three years is £8.346 million.
