Alzheimer’s Society announced our Care and Public Health programme grant scheme in 2016, which offered funding for programmes of work up to £2 million. This scheme represented our largest investment in care and public health research area to date.
The programme has now closed for applications. Currently there are no plans to relaunch the scheme.
Our investment will build capacity and focus in key research areas to deliver real world outcomes for people affected by dementia. We want to ensure that these investments tackle some of the biggest areas of need for people affected by dementia and are also relevant to the work and strategy of the Alzheimer’s Society. Therefore, researchers were asked to address one of four priority themes in their applications:
- Post-diagnostic support
- Independence at home
- Advanced dementia
- Quality of life
Announcements on the successful applications will be made in mid-2017.
