This week, events are taking place all over the UK to mark Small Charities Week - an annual celebration aimed at supporting and raising the profile of small charities across the country. Yes, that's right, this week is all about charities getting their voice heard - and so we didn't want to miss out either!
Brought to us by the Foundation for Social Improvement (The FSI), Small Charity Week is a brilliant opportunity for local charities and community groups to get active online, learn new ways of working, and hold events to celebrate their own achievements.
As we often say, it only takes a bit of time and effort to get your name out there in your community. You can have a go yourself... or ask us to help out! Here's a few ideas...
Sounds nice? Let us know and we'll be happy to give you some more advice! After all, this is what we're all about.
Have a lovely Small Charity Week,
The PReflect Team
We are pleased to announce that PReflect has been approved as a member of the Wales Council for Voluntary Action (WCVA) - the national membership organisation for the third sector in Wales!
As a lot of our activity takes place in North Wales, we find it crucial to be part of Wales' nationwide network of charities, NGOs and volunteer groups. The membership will allow us to stay up to date with developments in the sector, gain valuable contacts and take advantage of the WCVA's wide range of member benefits from training courses to room hire.
Outside Wales, we're lucky to have a few more valuable memberships in the bag! You may have heard of the wonderful Small Charities Coalition, who represent small charities at a national level and are all about building effective and lasting relationships between their member organisations.
With Dorset Community Action (DCA), Chester Voluntary Action and Brighton & Hove's Community Works on the list, we can develop links with other groups in each of the areas we work in, and ensure we've got all the support we need in your local area.
Stay tuned, there's more to come! Next week is national Small Charities Week and we're proud to support the FSI (Foundation for Social Improvement) by spreading the word in our own networks!
