DSC conducted a comprehensive review of the charitable objects, activities and finances of each individual charity included in this database using public records available from:
- The website of the Charity Commission for England and Wales
- The website of the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator(OSCR)
- Charities’ websites (when available)
- Other public information found through internet searches
Two surveys were also sent out to supplement desk research on armed forces charities. The first was a general survey to collect/ corroborate a variety of details on each individual charity. The second survey was for grant-making charities only in order to better understand the grant-making practices of the sector.
The project will continue to run for the next two years. We welcome any feedback that may allow us to improve the site.
