Alzheimer’s Society is proud to announce our new Care and Public Health programme grant scheme offering funding for programmes of work up to £2 million. This scheme represents our largest investment in care and public health research area to date.
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, we are asking researchers to address one of four priority themes in their applications. Full details can be found in the call specification.
- Post-diagnostic support
- Independence at home
- Advanced dementia
- Quality of life
The application process will have two stages. Applicants will be invited to submit applications through our online system. Stage One applications will be reviewed by academic and lay reviewers. Stage One applications will be shortlisted and successful applicants will be invited to submit a Stage Two application form and respond to feedback which will again be reviewed by academic and lay reviewers. Shortlisted applicants may also be interviewed about their proposal. Funding decisions will be made by March 2017.
Applications must be submitted through our online system:https://grants.alzheimers.org.uk
Deadline for Stage One applications is midday 22 July 2016.
