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’re currently open for expressions of interest in our call for research proposals in developing suitable homes and living environments for an ageing population and for applications to the joint doctoral fellowship with the British Geriatrics Society.**
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 in improving 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.
