Small charities have been invited to sign up for free training as part of Local Charities Day, the government-backed initiative that takes place next month.

Courses offered next month include how to design a fundraising strategy, how to run a successful crowdfunding campaign and business planning, the Department for Culture, Media and Sport has announced.

The sessions, which include face-to-face workshops and online sessions, will take place on Local Charities Day, which is on 16 December, or in the run-up to it.

The training, which will be run by the Foundation for Social Improvement and GlobalGiving UK, is aimed at charities and community groups with annual incomes of less than £1m and that have a local focus.

Rob Wilson, the Minister for Civil Society, said Local Charities Day would offer the chance to celebrate the work being done by small, local charities.

"Their dedication and hard work deserves to be recognised and I hope people everywhere show their support both in the lead up and on the day," he said in a statement.
