Small Charities Coalition to close

The Small Charities Coalition is closing, it has been announced on twitter.

In a statement on the coalition’s website, it said that the “extremely difficult decision” was taken by the trustees and team after all possibilities to secure funding were taken.

It’s expected that it will wind down in Spring 2022.

The SCC started in 2008 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.”

The statement said that since then, “enormous progress has been made” particularly during Covid-19 where smaller charities have “played a critical role” and shows that ther was a very real need for its services, including the HelpDesk, training and events and a newsletter and mentoring programme.

The charity was able to get funding until 31 March 2021, but securing financial stability for the charity “has been a perennial issue”.

“Like many charities, large and small, we faced our own challenges around finance and fundraising. Sourcing funding absorbs significant time which, with a small staff, made it difficult to meet our commitment to serve small charities.”
