Face to Face Learning

Providing Training to Small Charities

At the FSI we believe that if knowledge is not shared its value diminishes, so we share our knowledge with small charities. Our training courses cover a wide range of subjects from event planning to leadership. However, we know that what you need most is to secure funding, so the majority of our training courses are focused on helping you to learn the skills to raise and earn income for your charity.

Our extensive training programme, which is heavily subsidised by the FSI, is at the core of our support for small charities.  In 2017/18 we, with our deliver partners, have been awarded the contract to deliver an extended programme of learning opportunities.  Combining our current delivery of 1591 FSI learning opportunities with 2571 made possible through the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport training for small and local charities and community groups programme.

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.

As always our aim is to keep the costs to our small charity delegates to a minimum through our own fundraising efforts.
