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.
