This is a great opportunity to hear more about the role and work of the Small Charities Coalition. Founded in 2008, it has over 9,000 UK-wide members and its mission is to provide them with relevant support and make their voices heard.
There are 168,000 registered charities in the UK and countless micro charities that don’t qualify to register. 97% of these have less than £1 million annual income, sharing less than 20% of the money that goes to the charity sector. The Small Charities Coalition also provides a network where small charities can belong, share knowledge and support one another.
In the West Midlands around 80% of VCS are micro to small organisations that work in neighbourhoods, within communities of place and interest – the backbone of the sector and civil society. Find out how the pressures of austerity, public sector cuts have affected smaller groups and their future development.
