Research and Development Awards

See below for guidance notes on applying for a Research and Development Award at Expression of Interest stage, as well as document versions of the Expression of Interest application form, that you may like to use to plan the content of your application before the online portal opens on Thursday 1 October 2020.

These documents are available in alternative formats on demand so that these can be tailored to the specific needs of the people requiring support. We know that in some cases this can best be met through the use of support workers rather than alternative formats – talk to us and tell us what works best for you by contacting or on 07506 679968.
