Inclusive event places
The Benevolent Fund provides five free places at each of our one-day conferences for individual MA members who face barriers due to ethnicity, disability, socio-economic background, and gender identity or sexual orientation (LGBTQ).
These free places are part of our wider work towards creating a more inclusive sector. We will also support any accessibility requests such as provision of British Sign Language (BSL), audio description or closed captioning.
The Benevolent Fund will provide 20 in-person and 12 online free places to this event to individual members who face barriers due to ethnicity, disability, socio-economic background and gender identity or sexual orientation (LGBTQ). These free places are part of our wider work towards creating a more inclusive sector. The deadline to apply for an inclusive place for our 2023 conference has now passed.
To support your attendance in Newcastle-Gateshead, you will be able to claim up to £250 from the Benevolent Fund to support travel, subsistence and accommodation costs. You will be sent details of how to claim this if you application is successful. We will also endeavour to support any access requirements you may have – please email firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss these in confidence.
You can apply for a free inclusive place through the event inclusive places request form, which is featured on all individual event pages, and you can browse our forthcoming events via our events page.
If you have any questions about applying for an inclusive place at an event or want to discuss your access requirements, please email email@example.com and we’ll be happy to help.
