The FSI  – about our charity

Each year the trustees and donors to the FSI donate approximately £2.2 million worth of FREE support to Small Charities. Why? Because every day thousands of small charitable organisations struggle to remain open. Each day these organisations support individuals, families and communities who positively touch the lives of millions.    

Our aim is to support small charities to become more efficient, effective, accountable and self sustaining. We do this by delivering expert knowledge, strategy and support to small charities free of charge so their futures are secure and their users protected.

I hope you are able to join us at the training and look forward to meeting you.

Pauline Broomhead
CEO, the FSI
