ICS networking in the Midlands

Support for system-wide networking across the region

Access funding from the Midlands Finance Academy for networking events in your system.

What is on offer?

The Midlands Finance Academy has funding of £2,000 + vat available for every ICS in the Midlands to put towards system-wide networking for their finance staff.

This could be used for a face-to-face or online event, or could be put towards a number of events and sessions.

When is it available? 

The funding must be used within the 2024-25 programme year (1 April 2024 to 31 March 2025). You can request the funding for an event that takes place after 31 March 2025, as long as the invoice can be raised before that date.

How do I access the funding?

Contact becky.vine@hfma.org.uk and a Purchase Order number will be raised for you to include on your invoice which will need to go to HFMA.

How else can the Academy support our system in networking?

In addition to the funding, the Academy can support you with suggestions for agenda topics and content for networking event programmes. On this page you can find an event checklist template and a programme template, as well as information on any upcoming ICS events in the region.

For any additional support in planning your networking event please contact becky.vine@hfma.org.uk
