New roles to support Small Charity Week and update on The FSI legacy work

Following on from the announcement The Foundation for Social Improvement (FSI) is closing, we’ve worked closely with their board on two next steps.

We’re co-ordinating a two-hour stakeholder session on 20 April at 14:00 with The FSI to explore how we can best ensure the organisation’s legacy of small charity support lives on. The session will be chaired by the co-chairs of the new Small Charity Advisory Panel. Everyone who has already expressed an interest will receive an invitation shortly. You can book your free place for the session.

We’re also looking at how we can support the delivery of a successful Small Charity Week this 19 to 23 June 2023. We want to ensure we shout about all the great work being delivered by small organisations in communities across the country.

We’re delighted Lloyds Bank Foundation for England and Wales are supporting Small Charity Week and funding two short term roles to support its delivery. These two roles – campaign project manager and campaign project officer – are open to applications as secondment opportunities or as a freelance assignment. For more information about the roles please email smallcharities@ncvo.org.uk.

Drawing on the expertise of the Small Charities Advisory Panel, the Civil Society Group, NAVCA members and many others, we’ll host the two short term roles at NCVO. They’ll provide coordination across the voluntary sector and ensure Small Charity Week helps increase understanding of – and support for – small charities.

We’re hoping Small Charity Week 2023 will demonstrate and celebrate the huge legacy of the work of current and former staff and trustees of The FSI. If you’re interested in being involved in Small Charity Week please email smallcharities@ncvo.org.uk.
