The award is supported by the CSP Charitable Trust and is aimed at members facing financial barriers and members from marginalised communities to attend the 2024 annual conference. 

'This is an amazing initiative from CSP to support members who otherwise won’t be able to participate.' - Widening Participation awardee, 2023

In 2023, the award supported members to attend the conferences across the UK, funding those who had never attended, were presenting, and were facing financial pressures due to the cost of living or cost of travelling with disabilities.

Applications are being accepted until 9am on 22 July, for 60 members to attend the CSP annual conference online or in-person in Manchester, from 10-12 October. 

'Being able to attend the CSP annual conference, hear from experts and learn about best practice should be accessible to all, and we recognise that there can be funding gaps for some, so I'm so pleased we’re able to run this again in 2024.' - Meredith Newman, CSP conference programme lead
