Small Charity Support

Small Charity Support is a registered CIO {Charitable Incorporated Organisation, 1161963} set up to help the many “ordinary” volunteer trustees of small charities who are struggling to cope with unnecessarily complex and jargon-laden official guidelines and bureaucratic regulations which are mostly tailored more for the minority (<25%) of larger charities (annual income from £0.25M to £700M).

Small Charity Support focuses exclusively on the needs of such small charities by:

  • leaving out material which is not relevant to small charities;
  • eliminating unnecessary jargon;
  • explaining how to run a charity in “everyday English”;
  • showing how to manage small charity finances in a “common sense” way;
  • helping trustees to manage common day-to-day problems in small charities;
  • not charging commercial fees (in fact, most of the support is provided free).
