Current challenges facing small charities
Departure from the EU, an uncertain economy and overstretched local authorities are political changes that will dramatically affect the landscape for small charities in the near future. A recent report by a major grant-making body warns that there are some key challenges on the horizon for small charities and warns them to implement a range of actions to ensure their survival, including diversifying their funding streams, although there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach for doing so.
Among the forthcoming political, social and economic challenges in the report are the effects of Brexit, an unpredictable economy, local authority services stretched to "breaking point", bitter social divides exposed by the EU referendum and increasing job instability all of which will all have an impact on small charities. A greater need for digital and technological skills, falling public trust in charities and the need for charities to make their voices heard to ensure that the government’s vision for a "shared society" involves the voluntary sector are also highlighted as issues.

CHARITY KNOW-HOW exists to help smaller charities with these and other challenges. It would be my pleasure to work with you – a review of your organisation is usually a good place to start!
By PARTNERING with CHARITY KNOW-HOW, you are in VERY SAFE, EXPERIENCED Hands.
"The charity sector is fortunate in having no shortage of people with a mixture of valuable skills and experience, but it’s rare to find business acumen, entrepreneurial spirit and charity know-how in equal measure in one person.
During David’s work with us he drew on his twenty years of leadership in the third sector, asking thought-provoking, challenging questions and making practical suggestions to help us move forward. His approach is analytical, tempered with sensitivity and a genuine heart for the cause - which made him a great cultural fit for the organisation."
David McAuley (CEO of the Trussell Trust)
