Almanac data for your area

How much do charities in the North West spend on grant-making? Where do youth groups get most of their income from? The answer to these and many other questions can now be found in new pages on our Almanac site.


The majority of the content in the Almanac relates to the whole of the UK, giving aggregated trends for charities across the whole country. But we’re aware that this hides significant variation between charities.

To help get more in-depth figures, we’ve made a number of the charts interactive, so that when you’re logged in (as an NCVO member), you can limit the chart to a single region or subsector (see an example of this). You can see a list of the interactive charts in the members’ area.

We’ve now taken this one step further and brought all the interactive data together in one page, giving an overview of the voluntary sector in one region or subsector. So if you’re interested in how much charities in the North West spend on grant-making or what the income sources of youth groups are then you can now view all that data and more.

You can view the regional and subsector profiles here:

You need to be an NCVO member to view these pages. If you’re not already registered for the Almanac site, you can register using your NCVO membership number (which is found on any email you receive from NCVO).

(And if you’re interested in data for smaller areas than regions you can also check out the Voluntary Sector Data Tool, where we’ve worked with partners in South London, Bexley, Buckinghamshire and Kent to produce open data about charities in those areas.)
