  • The only other real growth area is the voluntary sector: but this is in essence an internal transfer of resources within the sector, so maybe not useful to think of it as such.

  • Over three-quarters of statutory income to the sector (76%) is received by large and major organisations. This concentration of government funding in national organisations means that it is difficult to analyse geographically where government spending on the sector is distributed.
    It is possible to look at which locations have large numbers of organisations that receive income from government. The graph shows the proportion of voluntary sector organisations in each local authority in England and Wales that receive funding from government, although it is worth remembering that sample sizes in some areas will be small. This funding can be
    very small, and includes all types of grant and contract income from statutory sources.
    The map shows that some local authority areas have very low levels of state funding to the voluntary sector – with as few as 7% of voluntary sector organisations in the area receiving funding from the state.
    Other areas have up to three-quarters of voluntary sector organisations (76%) receiving funding from government. However, these extremes are the exception, as half of all local authority areas have between 18% and 33% of voluntary sector organisations receiving government funding.
    Looking at the picture for regions and countries, government income is particularly important to voluntary sector organisations based in Yorkshire and the Humber, the East Midlands and Wales.
    Income from government makes up more than half of the sector’s income in these three areas. Figures published by the Northern Ireland Council for Voluntary Action also indicate that government funding makes up nearly half of the income of charities in Northern Ireland.
