Welcome to the Grants Development Office

29 May 2015 Note:

Hi everybody!

We are having some seriously weird telephone issues here at the Business Training Center, so until further notice our motto is, ‘don’t call us, we’ll call you’!

It seems our voicemails are being stored somewhere in limbo where we cannot access them, so if you’ve tried to reach us in the past couple of weeks and we haven’t returned your call, we are not ignoring you. Please instead email us at our respective addresses.

Thank you.
