It is important that all charities demonstrate to their beneficiaries (in the case of the FSI our Members) and their donors and supporters the impact they make with the funds given to them.
We are pleased that over the last 10 years we have increased the number and value of learning interventions to our members, whilst at the same time ensuring efficiency by reducing the cost of each intervention.
Over the last three years we have delivered more learning interventions to our members at less cost to the FSI whilst increasing the value to our Members.
We strive each year to demonstrate to you, our members, donors and supporters how we have used the money raised to give maximum impact to small charities across the UK.
We hope that you enjoy reading our 2016/17 Impact Report. We hope, like us, you think that we have spent our funds wisely, have invested in the right technologies to support the work we do and have delivered as much support as possible to our members. We are determined to shape the delivery of our services to meet the very different needs of our beneficiaries, ensuring that charities are able to access our services face to face and online and that they remain heavily subsidised or free to ensure that as many small and local charities and community groups as possible are able to take advantage of them.
Our thanks go to all of the individuals and organisations whose support makes all of our work with small charities possible. Our amazing team of Trustees, donors and supporters, businesses that sponsor our activities and our amazing volunteer trainers, speakers and advisors who donate their time and expertise freely. And last but by no means least, the small but amazing staff team at the FSI.
