Small Charity Index shows high demand, low income

The Small Charity Index, launched by the Foundation for Social Improvement in June to “create a stronger voice for charities by providing a monthly ‘pulse of the sector’ report”, has produced its first quarterly review. It finds a huge increase in demand for the services from small charities while seeing a drop in voluntary income. FSI says that the index publishes reports from a database of charities that are representative of the small charity sector as a whole by income, cause type, and geographical location.
