Every sector communications face a challenge. But what about when that challenge could be to raise the profile of a charity that struggles to get its voice heard? Who is depending on you and you need to perform for?
There are over 150,000 small charities in the UK, according to the Charity Commission. A small charity is defined as having an income under £1 million.
However there are many charities with an income over £1 million which could be described as ‘small’ in terms of their staff numbers and available resources. In fact, there are almost 9,000 charities which (unhelpfully) fall in the £500,000 to £5 million income category. There are less than 2,000 charities with an income of over £5 million, so it’s fair to say that small charities play a vital role in the sector.
