star this property answer text <p /> <p /> <p>The coalition Government outlined the evidence in <em>Local support to replace Community Care Grants and Crisis Loans for living expenses in England, Government response to the call for evidence June 2011.</em> A copy was placed in the House library and it can be found online at <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/local-support-to-replace-community-care-grants-and-crisis-loans-for-living-expenses-call-for-evidence" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/local-support-to-replace-community-care-grants-and-crisis-loans-for-living-expenses-call-for-evidence</a> </p><p> </p><p>Nottinghamshire County Council have consulted on their plans to wind down their dedicated scheme and provide support by other means. Information on other authorities will be provided by the review my Department will shortly be carrying out about the way local authorities have used the funding provided following the abolition of the discretionary Social Fund. We are making arrangements with local authorities regarding this. A copy of the findings will be placed in the House Library.</p><p> </p><p>There has never been a commitment to provide specific funding beyond 2014/15. On the basis of experience on the ground since support was localised, central government believes that it makes most sense for councils to choose how much funding to allocate to these services in their areas in future - according to local priorities and needs - and how to provide such support.</p><p> </p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The existing bilateral programme fund, run by our Embassy in Pyongyang, has contributed to a number of projects aimed at improving the lives of some of the most vulnerable people in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK). These include helping to improve food and nutrition for people in rural areas and equipment for the physically disabled. In addition, our funding of English language projects and visits to the UK for government officials, exposes DPRK citizens to other values and cultures. We assess that many of our existing projects contain a human rights element, without strictly being defined as a human rights project. In the coming year we will continue to fund such projects where possible and will assess future human rights projects under the Magna Carta Fund for Human Rights and Democracy. The amount spent on projects categorised as containing a human rights element between 3 September 2013-8 October 2015 was £270,046.61.</p> more like this
