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



FSI Fundraising Day

The Advice Hub is temporarily closed, in the run up to Big Advice Day on 15th June - part of Small Charity Week 2021. You can still submit your queries by clicking the button on the right, to be matched with an advisor when the Hub reopens.


The Hub will reopen in July.


International development organisations are able to access the Hub between now and July 2021, as part of the Small International Development Charities Programme.

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.
