This week's blog looks at the findings from our latest report on how to measure public giving and some of the pitfalls and challenges in doing so.
In our healthy audience report, we looked at 50 different health and disability conditions and the charities that work on the related cause. We were interested in examining the relationship between the number of people with a condition and the size of the largest charity supporting those affected.
This 2019 report is based on updated research first conducted five years ago, in early 2014. The report looks at the relationship between the number of people with a particular medical condition or disability and the size of the largest charity supporting those affected. One of the key questions we try to answer is whether the number of people who have a condition determines the size of the charity associated with it. We have extended the report to include research looking at public perceptions of progress made by health charities.
It's Christmas time and as per tradition we're giving away 12 more of our reports. They address key issues like lobbying, fundraising and trust, plus a couple of niche ones like Gift Aid and media spending. Enjoy!
We've been sending out quite a few free reports recently, so we thought we'd put them all in one convenient place. Here's a preview of what's available:
The Politics of Charities
What do the public think about charities having the right to lobby? And what does it mean to MPs and journalists for charities to 'be political'?
Global Digital Fundraising
Global communication has opened up new opportunities to engage with communities and key audiences. So what does this mean for non-profits in different environments?

We commissioned nfpResearch to find out about people's experiences of working with us and what changes we might need to make. In 2022, we shared the full report and our initial reflections on the findings.
CharityComms was launched in 2007 with a mission to improve the standard of communications and champion its role in the sector.
