One-to-one funding advice sessions for Walsall

Our National Lottery Grants for Heritage programme is open, and we are looking for applications from Walsall, one of our Areas of Focus. Walsall has received less funding from us in the past, so we are providing extra support to help groups from the area apply for grants. 

Book onto one of our free advice sessions if you would like to discuss your heritage project ideas or ask any questions. The advice sessions are online informal one-to-one chats with members of our Engagement Team. They can last up to 50 minutes and are available throughout the day.

Upcoming dates available for booking:

  • Tuesday 7 June

To book, please enquire via email at, or you can call 01922 619840.
