During 2012 to 13 and 2013 to14 the Home Office made grants totalling £3.11m and £1.80m respectively to organisations under the provisions of the Charities Act 2006.

This does not represent the total amount of grant funding provided to the voluntary and community sector, as other grants may have been paid to this sector under the powers conferred by alternative legislation.

This paper was laid before parliament in response to a legislative requirement.
