How can the Liverpool Funders Fair help your group?
The Funders Fair will give you an opportunity to find out about a wide range of funding programmes and discuss details with staff from the funders.
You can choose to attend one of the practical funding workshops that will look at some key aspects of a funding application. Places in the workshops are limited so please tell us which one you wish to attend.
