How are charities funded in the UK?

How charities in the UK are funded is different for each individual charitable organisation.

Some charities are funded by central or local government, others depend on donations and some receive grants from other charitable organisations, such as community foundations. Charities are able to apply for grants from a foundation, which are funded in a number of ways from individuals and businesses in the local area. Grants enable charities to carry out vital work and give something back to the community while providing help and support for those who need it most.
