Actions and Detail Panel


Join our Grants Get-togethers for the opportunity to talk about grants and share advice with other group volunteers.

About this event

In feedback last year you said you’d like more opportunities to talk about grants with other group volunteers. We know groups are in different positions with offering grants – some have been doing this for many years, while others are just starting. But whether you’re asking for advice or sharing your own experience, we want to support you to connect with each other.

So, we’re running Grants Get-togethers on Zoom, which are:

  • for any group volunteer involved in grants; whether you’re a support volunteer helping people to apply, or someone on your group’s grants panel assessing applications
  • monthly, hour-long sessions that you can drop into – however, please register on this page to help us manage numbers (if a lot of people want to join, we’ll add another session)

What to expect

These are informal sessions to chat with other volunteers across the nations – with a grants focus. We don’t have an agenda, but if there is a particular topic you’d like to raise you can let us know when you register. We try to make sure the most common questions are discussed.

We want these sessions to be as useful as possible, so we’d love them to be shaped by you. We might have particular themes, add short training or information sessions, hold question time sessions.... Please share your ideas and suggestions about what you need so we can shape future sessions.

If you’d like to join a session but it’s full, please join the waiting list. We'll add another session if there are enough people waiting.


This meeting will take place via Zoom, a video conferencing application (similar to FaceTime or Skype) which allows you to participate via your PC at home, your tablet or your mobile phone. You may need to download the Zoom app to your device before you join a session.

When you join an online session, you can see and interact with the other participants on your screen. You can choose to use your device’s camera or to just be a voice in the discussion. You can also simply join the meeting by phone, including from a landline.

Once you have registered for an event, the information for joining the meeting will be emailed to you.
