Children’s charities among top earners

Children’s charities feature prominently in a group of 14 emerging “supercharities” that generate 10 per cent of the voluntary sector’s total annual income, according to new research.

NCH, Barnardo’s, Save the Children and the NSPCC were among the biggest earners in the group, according to the survey by the National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO).

Learning difficulties charity Mencap, disability charity Leonard Cheshire and the Salvation Army were also  in the group, which generated a total of £2.5bn in 2003-4.

NCVO’s UK voluntary sector biannual almanac, published last week, also finds that the concentration of resources is “becoming more acute over time”.
