Not surprisingly, FUNDING is at the top of the agenda for most of our members currently. This is the first in our series of COVID-19 Support Events which are free for WeDO Scotland members and will be taking place twice weekly in addition to our weekly Brainstorming meetings every Monday at 11am.

We’re delighted to have a fantastic panel joining us with a wealth (pardon the pun!) of experience in a variety of funding options.  Our thanks to them all for kindly giving their time and sharing their expertise with us which we know will be invaluable.
