Small Charities Coalition to close

The Small Charities Coalition (“SCC”) has announced that it is to close in Spring 2022. Summarising from the announcement on their website, SCC say:

The trustees of SCC regret to announce their decision to formally wind up the charity.

This has been an extremely difficult decision. It has been taken after the Trustees and SCC’s team have exhausted all possibilities to secure funding that would have put the charity on a secure, sustainable financial footing to continue its work in support of thousands of small charities.

SCC started life back in 2008, a time when there were limited resources and support available for small charities. The founders wanted SCC to be the “go to” place, enabling small charities to start up and run themselves well.

COVID has shown that there was a very real need for our services, including our HelpDesk, training and events, newsletter and mentoring programme.

This is indeed sad news, as the need for a body to represent small charities has never been greater.
