Foundation Grants Management Workshop

Thu, Nov 11th 2021 at 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

This workshop is intended to assist those Clubs who wish to apply for a Global Grant

Grants Management Workshop to be held  on Thursday 11th November 2021 (7-9 pm)

After due consideration and consultation with both the workshop team and some participants, it seems best that this meeting takes place on Zoom rather than face-to-face at Tilsworth. Although unfortunate as many of us had looked forward to a face-to-face meeting but given the circumstances, it is the best thing to do.

Although it was originally intended that this workshop would provide an opportunity for clubs to qualify for Global Grants, changing requirements for Grants means that this is no longer possible.

Instead, the Foundation Grants team will provide additional support to those clubs wanting to undertake Grants.  Alternatively, the on-line Global Grants CAN be used to facilitate qualification
