About Small Charity Week

Six days of free activities and initiatives for small charities with a turnover under £1.5 million

Small Charity Week is a campaign which was first established by the Foundation for Social Improvement (FSI) in 2010 to celebrate and raise the profile of the small charity sector.

The week is organised as a series of activities and initiatives to support and raise awareness of the hundreds and thousands of small charities that, every day, make a huge difference to vulnerable communities right across the UK and the rest of the world.

The objectives of Small Charity Week are to:
Celebrate the contribution that small charities make to communities throughout the UK and across the world
Improve the knowledge, representation and sustainability of small charities
Highlight the work of the small charity sector to the broadest possible audience
Encourage public giving
Work with the small charity sector to develop political engagement at a national and local level
