The Department’s planned expenditure by way of grants to organisations in Birmingham for 2012-13 and 2013-14 is shown in the following table.

2012-13 2013-14
Ring-fenced 76,555 79,949
Non ring-fenced 60,000 60,000
Total 136,555 139,949

Decisions have not yet been taken on grant funding allocations for 2014-15.

In addition to providing grants to organisations based in Birmingham, the Department also provides grants to some national organisations, which are not specific to Birmingham.

The figures above relate to the core Department. The Youth Justice Board (YJB), an Executive non-departmental public body of the Ministry of Justice, will be providing a grant to the Birmingham youth offending team in each of the next three years. The size of these grants has yet to be determined.

YJB grants are not officially termed as a ring-fenced, but in the context of their narrow statutory powers, such grants are only to be spent on matters relating to youth justice.
