Dudley CVS joins up with Small Charity Week 13-18th June 2016

Small Charity Week 13-18 June 2016

Dudley CVS is really pleased to be joining Small Charity Week (13th-18th June) again this year and are looking to invite Dudley borough’s small charities to help celebrate and put community organisations and Dudley on the map.

“Small Charity Week celebrates and raises awareness of the essential work of the UK’s small charity sector who make an invaluable contribution to the lives of millions of individuals, communities and causes across the UK and the rest of the world.

Small Charity Week is brought to you by the Foundation for Social Improvement (FSI), who with the support of partner organisations ensure the work of small charities is recognised and celebrated.”

The FSI defines small charities as charities and CICs that have an annual turnover of under £1.5million and many community organisations in Dudley can get involved because the overwhelming majority of charities are small.

Here’s how local organisations can get involved:

Monday 13th June – join the #ILoveSmallCharities celebrations on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram by by posting a photo of yourself holding a poster showing why you love your small charity? You could get your members and supporters to join in too! And doing so could win your charity up to £450 in the process. Visit the #ILoveSmallCharities page for more information.

Tuesday 14th June:  Big Advice Day – Pop into Dudley CVS DY1, Dudley for a special, mid-month DY1 stop shop  between 10am and 4pm to get guidance on any topic to do with running a voluntary and community organisation. You can also follow the event on social media.
