To ask Her Majesty's Government which groups have been funded under the Preventing Violent Extremism Pathfinder Fund in each of the past three years; and how much they have received.
The preventing violent extremism pathfinder fund provided £6 million in funding to around 70 priority local authorities in 2007-08. The Secretary of State for Communities wrote to Paul Goodman MP in January 2008 providing a list of funded projects. A copy of this document was provided to the House Libraries.
From 2008-09 funding to support local authorities' work to prevent violent extremism is paid through the non-ring-fenced area-based grant. While we continue to work very closely with local authorities, both directly and through government offices, we cannot require them to report on the use of their funding.
