You can approach the stalls of funders and speak to them about your project idea, pick up brochures, application forms and other helpful information. As well as funders, there will be some key agencies there to provide information and support including Fife Council’s community investment team and FVA’s capacity building team. This event is hosted in partnership with Fife Council.
