Our funding workshops and advice sessions 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. See our upcoming events below.
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 and/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.
You can book now via email:
