Analysis: high pay in charities

High salaries are the exception rather than the rule in the charitable sector, but media coverage begs to differ, while avoiding factors such as the exceptional scale of some organisations.

Figures show that there are around 2000 charities with annual budgets in excess of £10 million, some 60 of which spend over£100 million a year; financial information alone does not describe the complexity of their workloads. Are higher salaries really excessive for such responsibilities?
