Alzheimer’s Research UK’s Inspire Fund offers grant funding to support public and community engagement projects on the topic of dementia and research into the condition.
They offer grants up to £25,000 to support public engagement projects that that engage with underserved audiences on the topic of dementia, and meet one or more of the following criteria:
- Build knowledge and engage the public with the topic of brain health.
- Engage and create dialogue with people about the progress being made in biomedical dementia research.
- Highlight the value of research volunteers and reduce barriers to research participation
The scheme is open to people, organisations and communities with the ideas, passion, and ability to realise innovative public engagement projects on the topic of dementia.
You can apply for one of three funding tiers:
- Bronze up to £5,000
- Silver up to £15,000
- Gold up to £25,000
Applicants are encouraged to forge links with collaborators or groups to strengthen ideas, and Alzheimer’s Research UK will be facilitating relationship building during the second stage of the application process.
The first step when applying for this grant is to complete an expression of interest online. Your ideas do not need to be a fully formed proposal at this stage, but they should outline:
- What you would like to do,
- The purpose or need for it,
- The outcomes you want to achieve,
- And what partners or expertise you are seeking to be able to deliver it.
The deadline for expressions of interest is 5pm on 4 August 2022.
