Pre-application Q&A webinar: 20 June 2023

University of Derby Theatre

Watch a pre-application Q&A webinar we hosted for organisations interested in applying to Esmée for support who have questions about our application process or guidance.

Need is rising in the sectors we support and in the past few months we have been receiving more funding applications. We are conscious that we are not making more grants, so we want to do more to save organisations from spending precious time applying to us when it is unlikely we will fund their work.

In feedback we’ve received, applicants have told us that being able to ask us questions before they submit an expression of interest would be helpful. We’ve considered different ways of offering this and this pre-application Q&A webinar will be a chance for us to test out the format, with the aim of holding them more regularly.

We hope that this webinar helps 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.
