With limited funding it is unlikely that everyone who applies will get the funding requested but we will do our best to meet every request.
If you have discussed this with someone we can talk to at the QHC please tell us who?

please identify which parts of the conference you need help with.
By ticking this box, you acknowledge that HFQ may not be able to meet your request and that most requests will be limited to $600 per person (which must be returned if you do not attend)
