Small Charity Week 2022

Small Charity Week is a campaign which was first established in 2010 to celebrate and raise the profile of the small charity sector.
We want small charities to flourish and continue to provide the vital services that are essential to thriving communities. We help where we can by offering free, bespoke advice to small charities in North Yorkshire.
