Am I eligible for free FSI membership?

You are eligible for free FSI membership if you are a charity, community interest company (CIC) or community organisation with an annual turnover of less than £1.5million.

You will require on of the following:

  1. a charity registration number
  2. a HMRC exemption number

Alternatively, we will consider applications from organisations that can demonstrate:

  • That they are recognised by/registered by a governing body for example you hold a Community Amateur Sports Club registration number (CASC) issued by HMRC or
  • Have in place a small charity constitution, governing documents and equivalent board of trustees.

You will be required to provide a copy of registration and or charity constitution, on receipt and review of which we will confirm membership

If your income is above £1.5 million, but less than £5 million, you can join our Associate Membership scheme which gives access to our training, conferences and advice clinics for £215 + VAT per year.

Please note that Community Interest Companies are currently not eligible for FSI membership.
