Small charities are being invited to sign up to take part in low-cost training opportunities aimed at helping them to raise more funds.

The government’s Small Charities Fundraising Programme, which was announced in the Budget in March, is designed to help charities with incomes of up to £1m a year become more effective at raising funds.

The Cabinet Office announced on Wednesday that it had appointed the Small Charities Coalition, GlobalGiving UK and the Foundation for Social Improvement as partners to run the £100,000 scheme and that charities could begin applying to take part in low-cost training opportunities, which will take place between February and June.

Opportunities will include face-to-face training, one-to-one advice sessions, volunteering matches and webinars.

Subjects covered will include developing a fundraising strategy, fundraising from trusts and foundations and developing corporate relationships.

Rob Wilson, the Minister for Civil Society, said: "This programme will enable small charities to enhance their fundraising know-how, giving them access to the resources they need."
