Current deadlines

 

The current deadlines for the financial year will be posted and updated here.  

Please note, these schemes are for academic and clinical research organisations only.

Research project grants

Owing to the evolving situation with regard to COVID-19 containment, we have taken the difficult decision not to open to new outline Research Project Grant applications as originally planned on 23rd March, 2020.  We have many new awards already in the pipeline which will not be able to start for some time, plus we believe that we have a duty to current award-holders, both researchers and staff in community-led organisations, to help them through this difficult time.  Please note that if you recently submitted a full grant application and are still awaiting news of the outcome, you will be hearing from us as per the original timetable of mid June.

We will be launching our new strategic plan in autumn 2020 and hope to be announcing the new deadlines and schemes at that point.

In the meantime, please contact us if you are an existing award-holder and would like to discuss any of the following:

Adapting activities – we recognise that you may experience difficulties achieving some of the outputs or outcomes we agreed for your project, but need to be able to maintain our grant payments to you at originally-agreed levels during this period. If this is the case, please have a conversation with us if you are affected in this way and/or need an extension (costed or otherwise).
Deadlines – if you think you will struggle to meet a reporting deadline please get in touch with us so that we can agree a more realistic time for you to get things to us wherever possible.  We don’t want to put you under any unnecessary pressure.
Financial flexibility – we will be reasonable if you need to move money between budget headings to ensure your work can continue.  Please do let us know.
