Government spending up
Local government spending on voluntary and community organisations increased to £4.2bn in 2003/04, according to new figures published by the Office of the Third Sector. Central Government spending also increased.
The research was carried out by the Charities Aid Foundation on behalf of the Government. The figures are estimates based on surveys of central and local government departments.
Last week, the OTS revealed that government funding provided to voluntary sector umbrella bodies fell to £7.9m in 2007/08, down from £10m in 2006/07.
