Grant application development

Alzheimer’s Society wants to support researchers to carry out the highest quality, innovative research that will have a positive impact for people affected by dementia. 

Why is grant application development important?

Many funders recommend that researchers involve the public in the development of their grant application. This has been shown to improve the quality of research and relevance to those affected by the condition. 

We support researchers to involve people affected by dementia in developing their research and grant applications.

How can we support you?

Our Research Network volunteers are available to provide public involvement advice on grant applications to the Alzheimer’s Society funding schemes. 

Our Research Network volunteers will review: 

  • your plain lay summary explanation of how your research will/could improve the lives of people affected by dementia  
  • Your public involvement and engagement plans
