Coronavirus update
We hope you are all keeping well and staying safe !

It's Business as Usual at Winnovart. We continue to support our clients and partners in the delivery of funding projects, as usual. The impact on grants - funding programmes in general, depends a lot on the current stage of a funding project (application – evaluation – implementation) and we need to consider the timeline of a funding project. We are and will be a Hub of Support and Advice for dealing with the impact of Coronavirus on grants-funding during the current crisis. Updates will follow from us very soon.
