Where we’ll be in September 2016

Outreach Events September 2016With the summer months typically quiet for outreach and events, things are ramping up again towards the end of the year! If you are looking to come and talk to us about funding over the next months, the should be plenty of opportunities to do so from now until November, as we enter ‘event season’.

In September we’ll be arriving in the Northern Isles for a mini-tour taking in Shetland and Orkney. We’ll also be at a range of conferences and funding events around the central belt.

The events are listed below, and shown on the interactive map along with details of how to get involved. Just click on the relevant map marker for more information.

We have a potentially busy couple of months coming up, so there should be plenty of opportunities to come and meet us. Before the end of 2016 we should also be at events in Inverness, East Lothian, Midlothian, South Lanarkshire, Perth and Kinross, and Aberdeenshire. We’ll also be at a number of conferences and events with a national focus. More on those soon!
