'Deeply worrying' �2.3bn fall in individual giving

'Deeply worrying' 2.3bn fall in individual giving: Fewer people are giving to charity and those that do are giving less, resulting in a �2.3bn real terms fall in total donations in the last year, according to the latest barometer of individual philanthropy in the UK.

The UK Giving Report, released today, has reported a 20 per cent fall in the amount of money donated to charity between 2010/11 and 2011/12 to �9.3bn – a cash fall of �1.7bn (before inflation). It is the first time the total level of donations fell below �10bn since 2004/05.
