Our charities team understands the dynamics of running and maintaining a charity. To that end, our service is tailored to meet your individual requirements, particularly as regards costs and expenses. We are deeply committed to the sector and have established an extensive network of contacts that enables us to offer a holistic approach to the operation of a charity or not for profit organisation.
We operate a flexible charging structure where we try as far as possible to take account of your individual circumstances.
We run a free Charity Forum for charities and not-for-profit organisations. The aim of the Charity Forum is to champion the free exchange of information and ideas between chief executives and trustees of charities, Paris Smith and a select team of professionals with experience in the sector. You can find out more by visiting our Charity Forum page.
New research and an opportunity to apply for an unrestricted grant funded by Pilotlight and The Garfield Weston Foundation
A recent survey by social enterprise Pilotlight has found that two-thirds of charity leaders are concerned about stress and poor mental health in their organisation. Its publication, called 2020 Small Charity Leaders Insight Report: the Scissors Effect, highlights the growing challenges these charities are likely to face next year, and the need for their leaders to consider accessing external support to meet those demands.
The publication of the report comes as Pilotlight and The Garfield Weston Foundation launch the 2021 Weston Charity Awards, which will give 20 small charities a package of strategic leadership support and a £6,500 unrestricted grant. Charities have until 8 January to apply.
Congratulations on the success of the Paris Smith Charity Forum Annual Conference in November. It was a pleasure to speak to such a diverse and engaged audience and to announce our fundraising training around Local Charities Day.
The Paris Smith Charity Forum chimes with priorities that I highlighted of a sector that has the public’s confidence. I wish the Forum on going success in encouraging a more independent, self-regulating and sustainable charity and social enterprise sector.
