About this tool

Explore the voluntary sector in an area - find out about their income, expenditure, assets and workforce, and see where they are based on a map.

This tool uses data from the Charity Commission's register of charities. The original concept for this tool arose from a collaboration between South London CVS Partnership and NCVO. Since then it has expanded to cover more areas.



About Open Data

The data presented here is available for others to use as open data. This means it is available in machine readable formats like CSV or XML (see "get the data" underneath every chart or table).

Some further reading on open data and what it means for the voluntary sector:


This tool is based on data from the Charity Commission, which is just a starting point for data about the sector. We hope that in the future we will also be able to include a wider range of data on the sector.

We're hoping to expand the tool to other areas. If you would like to partner with us to include your area then email almanac@ncvo.org.uk.
