Update on the Meet the Funders event held on Thursday 8 December 2016

'Meet the Funders' is a free marketplace event providing access to funding information for community projects.  It is an opportunity for groups to discuss their ideas with potential funders and collect a range of information about possible sources of grant aid.  The event also offers the groups an opportunity to meet and work together.

The most recent Meet the Funders event took place on Thursday 8 December 2016 in the Heart of Midlothian Football Club "Gorgie Suite", Tynecastle Stadium, McLeod Street, Edinburgh EH11 2NL from 11am to 2pm . It was very well attended with 227 visitors and 28 Exhibitors .
