Small Charities Week – All You Need to Know

It’s Small Charities Week, a great way to help smaller causes that don’t often get the recognition or air-time of larger organisations. The great news is that you can support your favourite charities at Give as you Live!

Here’s what you need to know…

Small Charities Week runs this year from 18th to 23rd June, which gives plenty of time to prepare. The full week has different activities running on each day to help raise the profile of small charities and to celebrate everything that they do – with a view to raising vital further funds from new supporters.

On the 18th, the event will focus on PR and awareness-raising of the small charities in the UK, who will be able to enter for a cash prize as part of a national competition. The 19th is the Big Advice Day, when charities will be able to speak with experts who can help them to reach their goals.

On Wednesday, Policy Day will include a large policy event in Westminster and other smaller events across the UK which will give charities the chance to talk to government ministers about the issues that matter to them and to influence policy.

Thursday is fundraising day, which gives the public a chance to donate to great causes that they feel strongly about – and a strong platform for small UK charities to get noticed! Friday and Saturday are devoted to celebrating the impact of small charities and will round up the outcomes of the week.

So how can you support the event itself? There are plenty of details available, with an events calendar and social media feeds to follow: http://smallcharityweek.com/
