Leeds surgeries
We hold regular advice surgeries in our Leeds office; please contact the Development Team to find out the next available session.

Alternatively, if you are unable to travel to Leeds, you may wish to attend a local grant surgery or funding fair nearer to home.

Funding fairs
Funding fairs are larger events attended by a number of funding organisations. They are an ideal opportunity to seek advice on funding options in an informal atmosphere. There are usually funding workshops that take place at the fairs which provide structured guidance through funding procedures. Attendees are also free to browse the stalls if they prefer.

The Heritage Lottery Fund is also represented at some external funding fairs:
