Conferences to address problems of small charities
The Small Charities Coalition is holding two conferences next week to rally support for small charities. Patrick Cox, coalition founder and chief executive of Male Cancer Awareness Campaign, is inviting participants to suggest ways to close the gap between small and large charities and make the third sector fairer.
“There is no support framework for small charities, but there is support for small and medium-sized enterprises in business.”
His proposals centre on mentoring and solidarity from large charities. “If you put time or money into small charities, you will see the results,” he said. “Big charities know how important it is to have support and guidance. The coalition will give us a voice, and that voice is going to be screaming for attention.”
The conferences will be held at the Directory of Social Change in London on 23 July and at Anfield Stadium, Liverpool on 24 July. See www.smallisbest.com for more information.
