Events and workshops in the West Midlands

At HLF in the West Midlands we run free monthly funding support workshops in Birmingham to help you to apply to us for funding.

Development workshops

The first Thursday of each month 1pm-4pm

The workshops are a great opportunity to find out about our funding, get tips on how to make a good application and network with other organisations from your area. You will also meet the development team for HLF in the West Midlands who will provide you with free advice and support.

Places are limited; to book a place in advance please tel: 0121 616 6870 or email the development team.
