Overview of the report

CAF Resilience is our programme that explores how we, and others in the sector, can help small charities to be more resilient.

Through this initiative, ten small to medium sized charities in the UK, whose work has a 'problem prevention' focus, are receiving grant funding, alongside bespoke advice and training. The grant is ring fenced to give staff time to focus on organisational development not delivery.

This report shares insight from the programme for funders and major donors who are looking to support small charities. The report features:

  • Insight into what it's like to run a small charity.
  • Case studies on the small charities that took part in the programme.
  • Recommendations for funders and key questions they should ask small charities they are looking to fund.
