Making An Application To Support The Attendance of A Course Or Conference

You can apply for a grant to help NHS staff gain skills and knowledge that will have a positive impact upon the care of the patients in the hospitals or of the mental health and community services we support - as long as it is not a mandatory requirement of their role . 

You can also apply for a grant from a Research Fund to attend a conference in order to present non-commercial research and disseminate the findings so that patients across the UK, or wider afield, benefit from them.
