Updated report on sector impact of spending cuts

NCVO has published an update to the 2011 Counting the Cuts report, looking at the scale of cuts so far and those still to come, extending the previous forecast by three years. They estimate that charities’ income from government will be £1.7 billion (12 per cent) lower in 2017/18 than it was in 2010/11, if cuts are made proportionately.
