A range of faith-based organisations have received public funding in each of these years, normally in the context of providing public services or advising Her Majesty's Government. Similarly, a number of bodies seeking to promote inter-faith activity and dialogue at national, regional and local level have received funding in this period. However, a comprehensive list of such bodies is not centrally held and could only be created at disproportionate cost.
