Small charities are vital to the health and happiness of our communities. They're the ones working at grassroots levels and meeting the most pressing needs in our society.

At the FSI, we love small charities. Every day we are inspired by the amazing impact created by volunteers, trustees and teams working across the UK and internationally, and equally, we work hard every day to help small charities make even more impact.  

Through our work, we aim to:

  1. Build the skills and knowledge small charities need to thrive.
  2. Empower charity teams to build their confidence and network.
  3. Champion and celebrate small charities and their supporters
  4. Develop partnerships across the charity, funder and corporate sectors.


The FSI provides free and heavily subsidised training, advice, and conferences, as well as specialist consultancy and accredited Fundraising Qualifications for small charities. When your small team is just trying to get on with making a difference in the world, the challenges of raising funds, evidencing impact, and planning and governing effectively can feel overwhelming. We’re there, by each charity’s side, helping them navigate and sharing our expertise.
