What is Small Charity Week about?

Small Charity Week celebrates the contribution that small charities make to communities throughout the UK and across the world, by improving the knowledge, representation and sustainability of small charities.

Small Charity Week highlights the work of the small charity sector to the broadest possible audience and encourages public giving. Many organisations across the North East including VONNE, Connected Voice and Northumberland CVA are hosting an exciting programme of events under the theme of Inclusion.

Colette Harrison, Development Officer, Sector Support, added:

“Small Charity Week NE is a brilliant opportunity to share expertise, explore fresh ideas and celebrate the work of small charities throughout the region. We hope you will join us for one or more of our events".
