Services

Whatever your needs we believe we have a learning opportunity for you both on-line (includes videos) and face to face.  If you can’t find what you are looking for drop us a line and let us know.  Our aim is to bring you the support that you need as a small and local charity or community group.  All of our courses online and offline are heavily subsidised. This year we are more than doubling the number of learning opportunities available combining 1591 FSI learning opportunities for all small, local, international charities and community groups with 2571 made possible through the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport training for small and local charities and community groups programme.

Check out what’s on offer as together with our partners Localgiving, Charities Finance Group and Small Charities Coalition we will be delivering over 4,000 learning opportunities between April 2017 and March 2018 in 17 locations across the UK.  See below for more information or use the drop down tabs from the Service Menu.
