Small charities

Since our founding we’ve worked to understand what makes a charity effective; offering help and advice to charities so they can achieve the greatest level of social impact possible. Small charities play a significant role in the charity sector and NPC has some specific support designed just for you.

Starting to measure your impact

Impact measurement is often daunting to small charities with few resources; where responsibility for impact measurement might be shared between staff, or feature on a chief executive’s long to-do list. Starting to measure your impact is designed to help you take your first steps into measuring, understanding, and improving your impact.

Resources and insights

Our resources and publications provide guidance and innovative thinking to the social sector. These are all available free on our website to all. Popular resources for small charities include:

Free events and bursary places for small charities

We run a range of events across the year, many free like our series of events for trustees and our report launches. For all our events where there is a charge we offer bursary places to small charities, ethnic minority charities of all sizes and ethnic minority representatives from charities of all sizes. Our bursary spaces are available on a first come, first served basis. Check out our events programme and get in touch if you would like to apply for a bursary place.

Governance Awards

NPC is delighted to support the Charity Governance Awards category for Improving Impact in Small Charities. The awards have been running for 9 years and aim to celebrate and reward exceptional charity governance, while sharing exemplary work that inspires and informs boards and trustees across the country.  Check out the shortlisted and winners from previous years.
