Religions and social welfare

Faith-based charities

There are currently about 25,500 religious charities in England and Wales. 19% of charities and social enterprises in England claim to undertake specifically religious or faith-based activities, and 13% describe this as their main focus. The Faith and Social Cohesion Unit was established by the Charity Comission in 2007 to engage with faith-based charities and to raise awareness of the regulatory framework for government support.
The ones that received most donations in 2010 were Christian Aid, The Salvation Army, World Vision and Islamic Relief Worldwide.
