Information will be posted here when available

Carers' Career Development Fund aims at helping parents and carers to attend career development events outside of their normal working hours.

Institute of Physics Carers' Fund  and the London Mathematical Society Caring Supplementary Grant give members the opportunity to apply for grants up to help attend related meetings, events or conferences that maybe caring responsibilities wouldn't usually allow.
