Opportunities & Grants

The Younger Members’ Group is a new initiative to bring together members in their forties and under within the BFWG nationwide.


Established in November 2020, the Group aims to forge connections between younger members all over the country, building a network of mutual support and advice, as well as providing opportunities to make new friends.

The Group aims to foster new connections between younger members and those more established in their careers, too, through informal mentorships. The hope is that sharing professional experiences and advice is mutually beneficial, and develops intergenerational ties.

If you’re interested in joining, please get in touch at youngermembers@bfwg.org.uk.
