We’re coming to your community – Autumn & Winter 2018

Young man in a powerchair moving towards a large football, in a gymInterested in applying to us for National Lottery funding to make a difference in your community? We’ll be at a number of events across Scotland over the next few months, where you can chat to us about your ideas and get advice on applying. 

This includes running joint funding advice sessions in Glasgow, Dumbarton and Edinburgh with the Corra Foundation, another major funder in Scotland, which will offer you the chance to meet both funders on the same day and in the same place.

We’ll also be present at funding fairs and larger conferences where you will be welcome to speak to us about what activities you’re hoping to carry out in your community.

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!
