About Small Charity Week

Small Charity Week is a campaign which was first established by the Foundation for Social Improvement (the FSI) in 2010 to celebrate and raise the profile of the small charity sector.  From 2020 the campaign was jointly delivered by The FSI and other partners, all passionate about the work of the Small Charity Sector.


Due to the very unfortunate closure of The FSI in spring 2023, this year's campaign is bought to you by NCVO and Lloyds Bank Foundation.

What happens during Small Charity Week?

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.

What are the objectives of Small Charity Week?

  • 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

Find out how you can get involved as a sponsor, partner organisation or as a small charity.
