Again, anyone surprised? I know I was! Of course, there are plenty of other sources of money for the entities that get the funds: private, central government contracts and crowd funding. But this is a pretty interesting view of those grants which can be applied for, and where the money goes.
Looking at this cut:
- Sport accounts for just under a third of the grants made:
- 15% of grants are going into Community and Economic Development:
- 12% of grants are going into Social Services:
- Arts takes 12% of the grants.
I have then cut the data to look at where its gone to by sector. This breaks down the money given by funder. I think that its pretty interesting to see who gives what to each sector – and quite interesting to see the stand out sector getting funds.
