At a glance: the voluntary sector in London

Posted on 21 May 2014

LVSC, as part of its London for All programme, recently commissioned NCVO to compile data on the Voluntary Sector in London in order to give you a better understanding of the size and scope of the voluntary sector at both borough and London wide levels.

With this data we have put together a series of  'At a glance' briefing papers giving a snap shot of the voluntary sector at both borough and London wide levels.  Also available here is the 'raw data' we used to compile the briefing sheets.

When using this information it is worth noting that:

The information was compiled using open data sources and was accurate in October 2013 .

These figures do not include unregistered voluntary and community groups operating in every borough.

The registered charities data used in all tables have been filtered using a 'third sector test'. Included are organisations generally considered to be part of the third sector, we have removed organisations not traditionally seen as third sector but still registered as charities, such as housing associations, independent schools, government bodies, trade associations and faith groups whose main objective is the promotion of religion.

The list of Companies Limited by Guarantee has been filtered to remove registered charities (to avoid double counting) as well as organisations not traditionally viewed as third sector, such as management companies of blocks of flats.
