James Bowles, a PhD student at the Third Sector Research Centre at University of Birmingham had a go at mapping all registered charities in the West Midlands
The mapshows all 13,653 charities that were registered with the Charity Commission in September 2016, and had registered with a postcode that falls within the West Midlands.
The layers tab on the right allows for filtering by category of activity (proportional by income), the search function on the left searches by charity name.
The layers are ordered by frequency of type (with 82 umbrella bodies and 2383 religious orgs).
James Bowles made this map following a suggestion by Pauline Roche from RnR Organisation.
Pauline recognised how useful such a map would be, not only for all the charities on the map, but also for existing and potential funders, including individuals who might want to support a charity in their area.
