In November 2017 the former Secretary of State, the right hon. Member for Putney (Justine Greening) met Sir Trevor Pears from the Pears Foundation, which jointly funds the Centre for Holocaust Education (CHE), to discuss the work undertaken by CHE. Departmental officials meet regularly with CHE to monitor and review their work with the last meeting held in April 2018.

The Department has committed to extend the funding for the CHE until March 2020. Funding after that date will be considered as part of the Government’s next spending review.
