We support researchers and communities, systems and services, fundamental science and applied design. We care about inclusion, address inequality and make the interdisciplinary connections that bring your ideas to life.
The research we fund spans the range of academic disciplines: biological and biomedical sciences, health, social care, the built environment, engineering, behavioural science and others.
And we particularly love to hear from researchers working in partnership with community-led organisations.
We provide a range of funding mechanisms and support a number of networks focused on helping you to ensure that the outcomes of your work are shared and turned into practical benefit to improve the health and social care of older people.
Take a look at how the work we support is improving our understanding of the mechanisms of ageing and age-related disease, driving improvements in public health and innovating across the social care sector.
