Charities pay their female employees an average of almost 7.9% less than men, which was below the national of 8.6%.

The data is taken from a government website on which more than 10,000 organisations in the private, public and third sectors have published their gender pay gap data.

Only a fifth of charities paid women more than men, according to the data, with the rest paying men more than women.

But women were paid more in bonuses on average, the data showed, with 11.7% more in favour of female employees, although the data was skewed by a small number of large bonus pay gaps in favour of women at some charities.
