Snapshot of the charitable sector – three year view

The Charities Register holds an absolute treasure trove of information about charities, provided by charities.  Using the Advanced Search function, you can find out almost anything you might want to know about the charitable sector, and the role it plays in New Zealand society.

We recently made a search of all charities, as at 31 October 2010. 2011 and 2012, to find out how the sector’s income, expenditure, staffing and volunteering might have changed over the past three years.  This is what the Charities Register provided to us:
