The Heritage Lottery Fund would like to increase investment in natural heritage by encouraging applications from a wider range of organisations, including smaller groups developing solutions to the conservation needs of their local areas and reconnecting more people to nature. This event, run in partnership with London Wildlife Trust, is suitable for smaller organisations or community groups, especially those who have not have applied to HLF before.

Through informal activity, presentations and discussion we will focus on key issues for developing ideas into fundable applications.
