Giving Local this Giving Tuesday Give Local this Giving Tuesday! Giving Tuesday is here and if you are still wondering where to give this year, we hope this might help. It is always a good idea to give local and here are a few reasons why! The 2019 Civil Society Almanac has shown that the UK charity sector is predominantly dominated by larger organisations. However, it is usually the case that the smaller local charities in your area are in more need of your support. By giving local you get a chance to support people in your local community. Whereas bigger charities support individuals in need on a bigger scale, with local charities you will get to see the impact of your donation within your local community. Local charities can enable you to have a role in building the resilience of your local community. You become part of the change you want to see in your local area. Even if you cannot see them, there are always people in your neighbourhood, town, city, county that are struggling in silence. Smaller local charities often have a better understanding of the issues facing their local communities and the ways to address them. They usually tend to provide a community based approach which means more personalised support for people in need, an one to one support system and an accessible support network in your local area.
