VAO Repsol Sinopec/McArthur Small Grants Scheme 2019 Awards

The Small Grants Scheme continues to attract applications and although the awards are modest at a maximum of £500 they have enabled small organisations to carry out activities to benefit their members or to be the final, vital contribution to a larger project.


This year 17 organisations submitted applications, 9 of which had not applied before and we are pleased to report that the VAO Board awarded grants to all applicants.
