#MeetTheFunder – THET

19th May 2021 , 12:30 pm 1:15 pm

Attendance is subject to registrants completing a short pre-event survey; only then will joining instructions be shared.

THET manage over 300 Health grants through partnerships with the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office, the Department of Health and Social Care, and Johnson & Johnson, with grant values of between £3,000 and £1.5m.

Part of the week-long #MeetTheFunder event, this session is open to health links, charities and small NGO’s looking to either apply to one of THET’s grants or simply wishing to gain a better understanding of the grant process and how to make sure your grant application is considered.

An introduction to improving your grant development process, this 45-minute Lunch and Learn will give you access to the expectations and perspectives of a large global health funder. So bring your note pad, and don’t forget your lunch.
