To provide the information requested for all the years since the Office for Criminal Justice Reform was created would incur disproportionate cost. Information is readily available for 2008-09: financial information for the projects the Office for Criminal Justice Reform supported in for 2008-09 is shown in the table.

In addition to the projects shown in the table, the Office for Criminal Justice Reform supports local projects through the Community Cashback scheme. The scheme (worth £4 million this year) gives local people a say in how recovered criminal assets should be used to support local communities.

Details of the projects supported by Community Cashback can be found at:
