We know small charities make a big impact with limited resource. That's why we're here to help.
After the closure of the Small Charities Coalition (SCC), we were proud to partner with The Foundation for Social Improvement (FSI) to deliver SCC’s legacy. Our partnership was committed to providing small charities with a clear route for support and ensuring their voices are heard.
Following the closure of the FSI in May 2023, we remain dedicated to our shared vision of a sector in which small charities can thrive.
Across the UK, communities are supported by over 166,000 voluntary organisations, the majority of them small. 92% of our members are charities with an income under £1 million, and most have an income of under £30,000.
Supporting small charities and voluntary organisations to make a bigger difference is a vital part of our work.
We engage with small charities every day through our four pillars of support. And we’re here for everyone who works or volunteers at a charity or voluntary organisation.
