To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how much funding has been provided to the Nexus Institute in each of the last 10 years. 
§ Angela Smith
A full and complete breakdown of all sources of funding (for example, funding from individual Health and Social Services Boards and Trusts and Education and Library Boards) over the period of 10 years, could be obtained only at disproportionate cost. However, the Department of Health, Social Services and Public Safety has awarded the Nexus Institute recurrent core funding in the support of central administration costs over the last 10 years. This is shown in the following table:
£ 1994–95 34,556 1995–96 50,668 1996–97 52,000 1997–98 52,304 1998–99 55,794 1999–2000 57,244 2000–01 58,672 2001–02 60,140 2002–03 61,644 2003–04 64,085
In addition, the organisation has been awarded several one off payments to assist in the purchase of office equipment, development of business plans and conference expenses etc. This amounts to £96,360.
In April 2002 the Department awarded the Nexus Institute a further £104,718 over a three year period, towards a Double Trauma project assisting those affected by sexual abuse.
The Northern Ireland Office began funding the Nexus Institute in August 2000 and the amounts of award are shown in the following table:
£ 2000–01 39,256 2001–02 56,830 2002–03 58,494 2003–04 65,290
