UK Giving shows a worrying decline
The Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) has identified a continuing downward trend in the number of people giving to charities in its annual report on the UK giving landscape.
UK Giving is based on monthly interviews and includes a yearly total of more than 12,000 individual interviews. It is designed to show who gives to charity, what causes they like to support and how they like to support them. This year’s research has shown that for a third year running, significantly fewer people say they are giving.
Trust in charities has also decreased, with the number of people saying that they believe charities to be trustworthy falling from 51% to 48%. You can read the key findings of UK Giving here and you can download the full report here.
