Hot Spots, Cold Spots: What’s happening to London’s local charities?


This paper is the first publication of a larger strategic review of giving in London, which will explore recent developments in charitable giving and volunteering in London, and ways in which the capital can give more, give better and give together.

Centre for London is grateful to Sir Harvey McGrath for generously supporting this project.  The analysis of Charity Commission data on which this paper is based was undertaken by James Bowles, Third Sector Research Centre, University of Birmingham / NCVO. We would also like to thank City Bridge Trust for supporting a scoping project on giving in London out of which this strategic review grew.]
