I found this really interesting and very informative.

Good to hear reminders of the different funding streams available to support schools with service families, of ideas of bids and things that can be done with little or no funding. Lovely to hear the voices of children to start the session.

Great webinar, I feel much more confident to apply for funding in the future.
