Talk to us - advice surgeries and funding fairs in the East Midlands

If you are new to HLF, attending a funding event or workshop could be an ideal introduction.

In addition to using our funding advice service, there are a number of ways to meet members of the HLF team and to seek more information before making your application.

Workshops and Surgeries

We regularly attend funding workshops and surgeries as well as organise our own events. These are ideal if you have little or no knowledge of HLF and would like to find out more. The workshops and surgeries take place across the East Midlands region and usually include presentations by HLF and sometimes other speakers. There may also be opportunities to book an individual meeting appointment.

Upcoming workshops and surgeries

  • 26 April 2018 - HLF Sporting Lives celebration and Working Lives launch event in Derbyshire - Full details available on our Eventbrite page.

Funding fairs

Funding fairs are larger events usually attended by many different funding organisations. They are a good way of finding out more about funding opportunities that may be of interest to you in an informal setting. Funding fairs usually include funding workshops where you can learn more about certain funders and receive guidance on making an application. Attendees are also able to just browse the stalls if they prefer.
