The Small Charities Coalition (SCC) was founded in 2008 to provide small charities with information, advice and support. SCC sadly closed on the 31st March 2022. When the SCC announced its closure in December 2021, their trustees and staff, together with representatives of various infrastructure bodies and funders, came together to consider how they could secure a positive legacy to best support small charities going forward.

NCVO (National Council for Voluntary Organisations) is providing a home for the SCC Helpdesk and other key services. Read more about the transfer to NCVO and what it means here.

We continue to hold data previously provided by SCC on this site. SCC defined ‘small charity’ as an organisation with a social purpose and an income under £1 million.

The Small Charities Coalition ran periodic surveys with members to help to create more of a shared understanding of the bigger policy issues facing small charities.
