Grassroots campaigners more likely than big charities to deliver real change

In 2015 I hope that the public will get behind grassroots campaigns. There is a desperate lack of funding for smaller, local campaigning – especially when you look at how much money goes to NGOs and big charities in comparison.

The average annual income of groups that apply for money from Edge Fund, a relatively new funding network to support grassroots campaigns, is about £2,500. That really is very little when you consider the £64bn that goes to registered charities every year.
