Luton Funding Fair

Hot on the heels of the June "Meet the Funder" sessions" where local organisations had the opportunity to meet local funders, Luton Borough Council and VoluntaryWorks Consortium are now bringing National Funders to Luton.​​

 

This is a rare opportunity to meet and talk to national funders at an event packed
with information, workshops and advice for Luton's community and voluntary
sector groups.

Come and meet the funders and find out more about what funds are available and how to apply.
