Top charity sector resources

Working in the charity sector – whatever your role – it’s important to keep up to date. Whether that’s by subscribing to blogs, reading sector articles, joining groups, attending events or following people on Twitter.

  1. Hi Kirsty, I attend a bi-monthly meetup at the British Red Cross called Digital Fundraising Forum, I’d recommend it as it’s very interesting. There’s a Google list and a Linkedin group.

  2. Hi Kirsty,
    I would suggest adding the Institute of Fundraising blog to the blog section. I am biased but all the blog posts are sourced from UK fundraisers and cover a wide spectrum of fundraising topics or career advice. Covering everything from case studies, hints & tips to personal insight and experiences. A wealth of quality and up to date source for sector knowledge 🙂
