Small Charities Week

Small Charity Week celebrates and raises awareness of the essential work of the UK’s small charity sector who make an invaluable contribution to the lives of millions of individuals, communities and causes across the UK and the rest of the world.

The Age UK network is made up of 130 local charities of different sizes working together.

Age UK’s main strength is in its partner network, made up of small and medium organisations of different sizes. There are over 130 local partners in England, three national partners, and six local Age Cymru partners.  In addition to that, many of the local partners work with other small charities themselves, from Friends of Age UK to social care charities.  There are innumerable examples of charities of different sizes supporting each other across the network.

This year, Age UK Northamptonshire and Age UK are proud to take part in the Big Support Small campaign, which showcases examples of support between charities of different sizes. The aim of the campaign is to show how working together helps charities, big and small, achieve more for the causes they support.  Where is this more obvious than in the Age UK network!
