Funding opportunity for BME women's organisations

29 August 2012

Heritage projects are a fun and creative way to build stronger communities that help people to explore and share traditions; enabling communities to uphold their cultural heritage. Many projects bring groups, often of different generations, together to develop their creative, technical and personal skills.

Oxfam's Routes to Solidarity and the Heritage Lottery Fund are holding a half-day workshop which will:

·        explain what can and can't be funded by the HLF
·        help you develop and shape your project ideas
·        give guidance on the application process, including writing project outlines
·        link you with other BME women's projects interested in heritage activities.

The workshop will be run by HLF staff who can help you prepare your application and ongoing support can be provided to groups who wish to apply to HLF. The workshop will take place in the week beginning 15th October.

If you are interested in this workshop please contact Maya Sharma at 
MASHARMA@oxfam.org.uk by Friday 7th September. Travel and other expenses may be covered, depending on the nature of your group.
