For more information and eligibility to apply, please click on the criteria below.

In all cases proof of purchase of travel tickets and confirmation of hotel or other accommodation booked will be required. In the case of Bursary A proof of training fees will also be required. The bursaries will not be paid into the successful applicant’s bank account until either the course is completed or the conference has taken place. You must therefore be able to provide the necessary funds to support yourself while in the United Kingdom and bursary fees will only be transferred into a recognised bank account on presentation of receipts.

The closing date for bursaries for the 2025 conference is 20 November 2024. As our charity has limited funds, all applications will be considered in one batch at its December 2024 meeting to ensure all applications can be considered as fairly as possible.  The charity has received a high degree of interest for previous events. Applications after this date will not be considered.

Information correct as at 1 April 2024
