Ahead of the closing of the latest round of our Answer Cancer Fund we are hosting a series of virtual Meet the Funder sessions for organisations considering making an application.

This comes after the grant call and guidance was updated in light of Covid-19 and the resulting restrictions on delivering face-to-face services. Please note that in light of the difficulties some organisations are facing in the current circumstances, we have now extended the deadline by two weeks to Monday 18th May.

The Meet the Funder sessions will take place via ZOOM as follows:

  • Wednesday 29th April 1.00pm – 2.00pm
  • Tuesday 5th May 1.00pm – 2.00pm

To register for a Meet the Funder session please email grants@salfordcvs.co.uk stating which session you’d like to join.
