The List of Ministerial Responsibilities includes executive agencies within each department along with non-ministerial departments.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission is an executive non-departmental public body, sponsored by the Home Office. The College of Policing is a professional body that has been established as a company, limited by guarantee and an arm’s length body of the Home Office, with the Home Secretary the sole owner. The National Fraud Authority was dissolved in March 2014. On 1 October, HM Passport Office ceased to be an executive agency of the Home Office and now reports directly to Home Office ministers.
