In order to better support small and local charities and community groups (those with a turnover of less than £1 million) we need to know about you because we want to be there for you as much as possible. This is why when you access FSI services we ask you to become a member which is free.

Why become a Member?

 Once you have checked the options if you are unsure about any of the criteria or would like to discuss your circumstances, please contact us on 020 8142 5147 or email
