Sport England's current available records indicate that they have allocated the following amounts to the Sporting Champions programme since 2001-02.

2001-02 297,737
2002-03 338,714
2003-04 329,737
2004-05 336,026
2005-06 300,000
2006-07 300,000
2007-08 300,000

DCMS does not fund a "Cultural Champions" programme but we do fund a mentoring programme, which use mentors from sport, music and the media to help young people that are at risk of social exclusion engage with positive activities and make positive life choices. DCMS has allocated £1 million per year to this programme since it was established in 2006-07.
