Next month, I’m speaking on a panel at the annual smorgasbord that is Fundraising Convention, about the Future of Corporate Partnerships. It’s worth noting that the last time I spoke at an IoF Conference on this topic, it featured robots, drones and pictures of my baby daughter – yes, you are reading that right – it’s amazing what sleep deprivation will do to you.

There are networking opportunities aplenty at Fundraising Convention, as fundraisers from far and wide come together and share ideas and learn from one another.

Funding cuts and an uncertain economic landscape are challenges familiar to every small charitable organisation but, similar to those within the wider sector, arts, culture and heritage fundraisers continue to demonstrate a great capacity for resilience. Arts focussed organisations offer great examples of how creativity, flexibility and strong belief in the cause are vital to help ensure success in tough times, but we need to work more closely together.

We all know the phrase ‘the best things come in small packages’ – well, being 5ft10 I’m not so sure that applies to me. But it’s true that the charity sector is full of fantastic small organisations delivering a big impact for those they serve. For Small Charity Week I wanted to reflect on the great work being done in Scotland and how small charities in Scotland can stand out.

In 2017, I moved from Stirling University to work for Home-Start Glasgow South, a small local charity.
