Registration open for our 2023 Annual Conference, 11th & 12th May, Birmingham

Conference Bursary Scheme

This year, the Committee will once again offer 10 travel bursaries of up to £250 each to members who have registered and attend the conference.

The 10 bursaries will be allocated on a first come, first served basis though preference is given to those who have not previously received a conference travel bursary.
