Sessions are free, but places are limited. To book a place, email Donna DayLafferty, senior lecturer, on [email protected] with a message no longer than 150 words, stating the applicant’s current role within their charity and the sessions they would like to attend. Applications close on May 13.

Donna said: “For smaller charities which may only employ one fundraiser - that’s 97 per cent of all charities according to the Foundation for Social Improvement - having someone who knows their way round all the different approaches is vital.

“If a smaller charity’s fundraiser is only really confident running events, but making grant applications is the charity’s best option, then it may find itself missing out on income that could be vital to the charity.”
