Pre-application Q&A webinar: 13 May 2024

JustRight Scotland

We're hosting a pre-application Q&A webinar on 13 May for organisations interested in applying to Esmée for support who have questions about our application process or guidance.

We want to do more to save organisations from spending precious time applying to us when it is unlikely we will fund their work. We hope these webinars help organisations to better understand whether they should invest time in applying to us or if their efforts might be better focused on other sources of funding.

This webinar is for organisations interested in our support who would like to ask questions before they submit an expression of interest. We plan to hold these on a regular basis. So, if you can't make this one, check our website or sign up to our newsletter to learn about future dates.

What will the webinar feature

You’ll hear from Esmée staff who will share more about our application process along with what we’re looking for and what we consider when making decisions. However, we plan to spend most of the time answering as many questions as we can.

Please note: whilst we want to answer as many questions as possible, we are not able to offer detailed advice on individual applications before an expression of interest has been submitted. For expressions of interest that we think are a potential match, we will invite for a conversation to learn more.

Date, time and registration

The webinar will take place on 13 May from 12.00pm to 1.00pm. Register for the webinar.
