Having said that, it’s clear that we need to raise more awareness.”“Raising awareness of small charities will ensure that more can have an impact on people’s lives. The time to do that is now; Small Charity Week is the ideal time to support these relationships.”The research was conducted by YouGov, which surveyed 1,096 adults from 20-26 May online.
