Membership to AFVS CIC includes the following benefits:


  • Fundraising: We will arrange a consultation with one of our fundraising specialists to help you develop your strategy. This is generally in the form of a one hour chat on Skype (though we don’t set the clock ticking on this), followed by a detailed report with recommendations. Normally a small fee is charged for this service; however, we currently have access to a bursary fund, which will cover the full cost of the consultation.

  • Charity Toolkit: Developed as an extensive Toolkit for trustees, leaders, and administrators. It’s available on our website as a PDF download and is updated every month or so as new material comes on stream.

  • Consultancy: We provide advice and support on a range of issues, and where specialist help is needed we draw in our partners.

  • Accounts Migration: If you are thinking of moving your accounts/ bookkeeping online, we can help migrate your accounts over to Xero and offer training for your charity.

  • Training: We are available to come up for an evening or day to take trustees through their legal accountabilities, and answer any questions. We focus on issues relevant to them. We also have access to training bursaries that help to reduce the cost of the session.

  • Monthly Bulletin: Are you signed up for this? People find it helpful to keep them in touch with changes in the charity sector that they need to know about. (Also the odd sermon illustration!)

  • Legal advice: We work closely with a charity lawyer who charges modestly for his services.

  • Website: Our website has a library of useful briefings and templates, which is constantly being added to.
