I have been asked to reply on behalf of the Cabinet Office.

The Government have allocated £20 million in 2013-14, and again in 2014-15, to support the not-for-profit advice sector. Of those funds, England's share of £16.8 million each year will be used to support recommendations that arise from the Government's forthcoming review of advice services. This will be published later this year

The Government would like to work collaboratively with the not-for-profit advice sector and I recently discussed options for allocating the funding with the sector at an event organised by Justice for All on 1 May 2012.
