The British Council plays an important role in projecting British values and promoting international cultural relations around the world. The British Council will continue to receive the annual funding that was agreed in 2015 as part of the Spending Review. In 2018/19 that includes £151 million Official Development Assistance (ODA) funding and £13 million non-ODA funding. Future funding for the British Council will be decided as part of the next Spending Review. Any decisions on funding which are taken outside that process will be updated to Parliament.
