BiCon's Helping Hand
The Helping Hand Fund is a sum of money which is set aside for the team to allocate to BiCon attenders who may not otherwise be able to afford to come to BiCon. If you think you or someone else could benefit from this then you can tick the appropriate box on your registration form or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with appropriate details.
If you apply for funding giving us some additional information about why you need it will help us greatly when deciding on the allocation of funds. If you only need partial support for BiCon, please let us know, as this will allow us to use money for someone else.
If you are unable to pay upfront and are applying for the helping hand fund we will accept your booking as provisional and finalise it when funding and payment (if any) have been agreed upon between yourself and the BiCon team, we will try and come to some agreement which is mutually agreeable.
The deadline for applications to the Helping Hand Fund is 25th July 2004. We are sorry that we cannot accept applications to the Fund after this date. Applicants will be contacted regarding the outcome of their application no later than 10th August 2004.
Some examples (which are by no means exhaustive) of situations where people might require funding are:
- People with access needs who require a personal assistant for the duration of their stay or to cover extra costs which going to a BiCon might incur.
- People who are bringing children and need help with the extra accommodation costs.
- People on low incomes who would otherwise be unable to attend BiCon.
