This chart shows the beneficiary groups that charities in Buckinghamshire seek to support. It shows that children and young people are the most common group served by registered charities in Buckinghamshire, according to categories defined by the Charity Commission, with 1,120 different charities supporting children and young people. 


The next most common group of beneficiaries is the general public with 683 registered charities supporting this group, followed by elderly and old people with 523 charities supporting them.

This data was collated by Community Impact Bucks for their State of the Sector 2019 report. It used source data from the Charity Commission’s register of charities. Community Impact Bucks published a methodology report explaining how they undertook the analysis and calculated their findings.
