Most of the demand for advice is being met by our current volunteer advisors, but we are recruiting for experts for the Hub on the following topics: CRM systems, IT, digital fundraising and social media.

If you are interested in this opportunity please fill out the advisor register of interest form.



FSI Fundraising Day

To request advice through the FSI’s Charity Advice Hub, please click the 'Submit Query' button on the right.


We will then be in touch as soon as we can to arrange a call with one of our volunteer experts!

One-to-one discussions of up to an hour are available on a range of topics, as well as document reviews on request.

You need to be signed up as a free FSI charity member to access the Hub.

If you are looking for advice on starting a new charity or registering with the Charity Commission, we would direct you to check out the Small Charities Coalition advice service here.


Please note that although we accept generalist VAT questions, we are unable to assist with high-level or complex queries on this subject. We would instead recommend the HMRC telephone helpline for charity VAT queries.

Government information on VAT for charities can be found here.
