State now sector's top income source

The state now provides more of the sector's annual income of £20bn than any other source, according to new figures published at the NCVO conference today.

The state is responsible for 37 per cent, the public provides 36.6 per cent, and the private sector contributes 4.3 per cent. Another 6.6 per cent comes from other voluntary organisations and 15.5 per cent is internally generated through the sale of goods and services.

Large, national charities receive the bulk of government funding. Charities with income below £1m receive just 11 per cent of their income from government.

"The sector has successfully taken on a greater service delivery role while continuing to campaign for a fairer society," said NCVO chief executive Stuart Etherington.
