Small Charity Big Impact Day

Friday 22nd June

Small charities around the country carry out vital work but in many cases people are not aware of their impact. To highlight the work of small charities and the impact they make on a local, national and international level the FSI launched the Small Charity Big Impact Awards in 2017, and they are now in their second year.

Those selected by the judging panel won their categories as they clearly showed how they measure their impact, use it to improve their services and share it to build trust. You can have a read about the work carried out by the winners and their impact here and watch their brilliant videos here.
