Advice surgeries and funding fairs in Yorkshire and the Humber

There are many ways to get in touch with us. We hold a variety of surgery sessions and funding fairs to help with potential and ongoing applications.

Leeds surgeries

We hold regular advice surgeries in our Leeds office - please contact the development team to find out the next available session. If you have submitted a project enquiry form, we may invite you to one of these appointments or to an application form workshop at an appropriate time for your intended submission.

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.

HLF is also represented at some external funding fairs:
