Big Advice Day aims to provide small and local charities and community groups across the UK with access to free learning, advice and support, ensuring small charities are equipped with the information they need to help them be sustainable, keep their doors open and support their many beneficiaries

The FSI Small Charity Advice Hub
Didn’t get the opportunity to access advice on Big Advice Day? Why not try the Charity Advice Hub – a telephone support hub that matches requests for advice with expert volunteer advisors throughout the year. These one to one hourly advice sessions will reopen in July!

To register your interest in receiving advice please let us know via this link.

Share your Experience
We continue to recruit our team of Volunteer Charity Advisors to help deliver the Advice Hub throughout the year, so if you have voluntary sector experience and are willing to volunteer your expertise for a couple of hours per month (a commitment of hours to suit you!), then register your interest with us.

You can make a direct difference to small and local charities and community groups by sharing your experience in any of the following areas: building organisational strength, strategy and business planning, fundraising and income generation, marketing and communications, campaigning and public affairs, governance, volunteering and HR, financial resource management or impact reporting and measurement.

This flexible volunteering opportunity is perfect for any voluntary sector professional seeking to build on their skills and experience, someone wanting to keep involved in the voluntary sector or just someone wanting share what they know.

Join our volunteer team and help us to create a world filled with independent, effective and accountable charities with the belief, passion and capacity to achieve their vision.
