Mr Allen said Allen + Clarke expects to support up to four organisations with free consultant time of up to 150 hours per organisation in the current round being advertised.

Mr Allen said that the projects must be able to be undertaken between August 2017 and January 2018.

Applications for support can be lodged on the Allen + Clarke website. Applications must be submitted before 5pm on Monday 31st July 2017.
