The total number of registrations, along with other key figures, is available through the Charity Commission’s Annual Report which is available both on its website at: http://apps.charitycommission.gov.uk/Showcharity/RegisterOfCharities/registerhomepage.aspx and is also in the House Library.

This holds key information of all 164,000 registered charities in England and Wales. The advanced search function allows the user to search by registration date, operating area, income band, charitable purpose and other key items.
