Departmental Public Participation

Stewart Hosie: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how much his Department spent on (a) written consultations, (b) consultation roadshows and (c) stakeholder focus groups in each of the last three years. [205828]

Bridget Prentice: As most of my Department’s consultation exercises were covered by departmental costs as an integral part of the policy-making process, extracting the information requested would prove very difficult. However some consultations were funded by a different method and the costs of those can be found in the following table.

Domestic Violence: Victim Support Schemes

Mr. Bellingham: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice (1) how much funding from receipts from the victims surcharge was awarded to charitable and voluntary groups who work with victims of domestic violence and domestic abuse in 2007-08; [205715]

(2) which charitable and voluntary groups that work with victims of domestic violence and domestic abuse received funding from the receipts from the victims surcharge in 2007-08; and how much each received. [205716]

Bridget Prentice: The following table shows the total amount and which groups, with individual amounts, received funding from the victims surcharge for work with victims of domestic violence and domestic abuse in 2007-8.

The table gives details of the grants. In the main this is to Independent Domestic Violence Adviser Services which support the Specialist Domestic Violence Courts (SDVCs). Seed-funding grants are given to each group subject to confirmation of match funding locally. Continued funding is dependent upon satisfactory reports on performance.

In a full year the surcharge will raise £16 million of new money. All this money is going directly towards better services for victims of crime and witnesses. These include £3 million for witness care units, £3 million for independent domestic violence advisers and £8 million for other support services for victims, the details of which will be announced shortly. £1,250,000 will be allocated to organisations helping victims of sexual violence, and another £750,000 will be allocated to organisations helping victims of other types of crime.
