We are extremely honoured and grateful to the family of Kate, who had been members of CGF for many years. Kate had a growth condition and attended the annual conventions as a child and teenager, appreciating the information and support.
Sadly, Kate died in 2019. In her memory, Kate’s parents would like to provide funds of £500 a year to enable a family to attend our convention, who might otherwise be unable to afford to do so.
The bursary for the 2023 convention will be for a maximum of £500 and can include: cost of convention, hotel accommodation, convention childcare and reasonable travel. Travel expenses will only be paid once proof has been provided. This is open to both members and non-members of the CGF. If you do not currently have CGF membership and are awarded the 2023 bursary a one-year CGF membership will also be provided to you.
The staff and trustees of the CGF will review all eligible applicants and their decision will be final. The CGF will let all applicants know if they are unsuccessful but will not provide reason. All information provided will be kept strictly confidential and follow GDPR legislation. If you have already booked to attend the convention, you can still apply and your application will be considered, following the same criteria. If you are successful, any money already paid by you to the CGF for convention will be refunded.
If you think you might be eligible for this year’s bursary and would like to apply, please email email@example.com with the following information:
