Funding available to attend Congress 2018

19 Dec 2017

RCN North West is offering a helping hand to members who want to attend Congress 2018 in Belfast.

The most important event of its type in the nursing calendar, Congress enables members to meet, learn, develop and share nursing practice and to influence UK-wide nursing and health care policy. It's free to attend and members can register here today.

To support as many members as possible to attend Congress 2018, the North West Regional Board will fully fund 15 members to attend for part of the week, Sunday 13 to Tuesday 15 May. If you are interested in applying for this funding, please complete the application form and return it to Jill Lloyd, RCN NW, St George's St, Bolton BL1 2HB by Friday 2 February 2018.

For first-time Congress attendees, the Region has limited funding to help contribute towards the cost of attending. The money could help towards the cost of flights or accommodation and the amount will be dependent on the number of members applying for this pot of money. If you wish to be considered for a contribution towards your costs then please complete the application form and return to Jill Lloyd RCN NW, St George's St, Bolton BL1 2HB by Friday 2 February 2018.

Before applying, please ensure that you can obtain the time off work for the full three days and are able to fly from Manchester Airport. Funding will be provided for flights, accommodation and some subsistence allowance in line with the RCN expenses policy. For useful travel and accommodation information, visit our website.
