If you are seeking HotSW endorsement for your project or proposal, we ask that the following process is followed:

A response will usually be forthcoming within two weeks. In the event that the project meets the criteria, a formal letter of endorsement will be issued.  If it does not meet the criteria, we will explain the reasons behind our decision.

Please note: the Heart of the South West will not endorse projects verbally. Without the formal letter of endorsement, projects will not be able to claim approval. In the event that this claim is made without foundation, we may elect to inform the appropriate bodies to ensure that our reputation and those of the partners is protected.
