The day will be led by the FSI and Social Value UK, and sponsored by PolicyBee.
Small Charity Big Impact Social Media Competition
During this time, now more than ever the effects our work has is essential, with much of the work you do, as a small charity, going unnoticed – maybe because you are so busy doing and don’t have the time to tell everybody what you’re actually doing! So now is the time and a little incentive.
How it works: Using the provided template why not take a photo or record a short (10-20 second) video highlighting the amazing impact you made over the past 12months. Post it on social media using the hashtag #SmallCharityBigImpactDay. Let’s get it trending! Therefore we encourage you to motivate your supporters to post or on your behalf too.

During Small Charity Big Impact Day we will host a number of learning webinars to support small charities in their journey to better demonstrate their impact and value to society. Please click on the links for more details and to book the webinars:
1. 09:30 - 10:30: Know your value: From outcomes, to impact, to Social Value (Social Value UK)
It's all social but what are the differences between outcomes, impact and value? We'll run through a short presentation looking at the different definitions and what they mean for the work of small charities. There will then be the opportunity for questions and conversation.
Who said only the big are mighty? As a boutique investment manager that leads the way in responsible and sustainable investing we know that not to be true. We work with charities of all sizes to invest to make a difference, with a minimum investment of just £1,000. Join David Katimbo-Mugwanya, Senior Fixed Interest Fund Manager, for a workshop on how to achieve social impact through your investments, however small.
3. 14:30 - 15:30: Gathering wellbeing data, different methods and making it meaningful (Social Value UK)
Most of us are trying to improve wellbeing one way or another. In this session we'll take a look at some of the wellbeing measures out there and some ways of capturing wellbeing data more creatively too. We'll have a bit of presentation then a chance to discuss the pros & cons of different methods and what we think generates the most meaningful data.
