But inpractice they are substantially dependent, above all on the state;according to the definition used they receive between 35% and 39% oftheir income from government. This divides between contracts andgrants (perhaps surprisingly two-thirds of funding from localgovernment still comes in the form of grants rather than contracts). -See Mulgan’s Book:“The other invisible Hand”Remaking charity forthe 21st centuryGeoff Mulgan (power behind DEMOSpolitical think tank) Like CommonPurpose these are the ‘charities’driving political “CHANGE”.
