Since the Programme was launched in November 2012 the cumulative cost of travel and subsistence has been £848,962.

Accurate staffing support figures for the programme are not available as the programme pre-dates the formation of the Department and has changed as the programme has evolved.

For 2018/19 the programme’s staffing costs were approximately £551,000. This is based on the average salary costs for the current staffing level.
