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.  But from 2020 the campaign is now jointly delivered by The FSI and other partners, all passionate about the work 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

In 2014 the week was recognised receiving the Big Society Award from the Prime Minister David Cameron, a resounding endorsement of the work of small charities throughout the UK and beyond.
