The Society has decided to make funds available to increase access to its Annual Conference. It appreciates that delegates with responsibilities as carers often find it difficult to make alternative arrangements for the duration of the conference. The Society is therefore offering a limited number of grants  towards the cost of delegate’s care arrangements during the BSHS Annual Conference.

The Society realises that, at the time of application, delegates may not be able to state with certainty the alternative care arrangements they will make. Thus, the application form asks only for an indication of intended plans and likely costs. However, successful applicants will need to submit the claim form, and this does request details of the actual arrangements. This information will be useful to the Society in improving our understanding of the access issues facing our members, and suggesting what further assistance the Society could offer.

The deadline shall be the same as the registration deadline for the annual conference, unless otherwise advertised.

Applications will be considered by the Treasurer, and other experts as appropriate. No interviews will be held. The Society may offer an amount less than that applied for. No correspondence will be entered into except under exceptional circumstances.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
