This fund enables individuals and organisations to use creative approaches in engaging the public with health research.
Where your project will take place: UK, Republic of Ireland, Low- and middle-income countries in Sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia, and East Asia and Pacific
Level of funding: £25,000 to £3 million
Duration of funding: Up to 3 years
The Public Engagement Fund is open to individuals and organisations (commercial and not-for-profit). Your project must focus on health, although this doesn’t need to be your organisation’s main focus or core activity.
You can be working in the arts, culture, entertainment media, heritage, leisure, education, research, informal learning, social enterprise, non-profit and community sectors, or other fields.
They’re looking for creative approaches to engage the public. Your project needs to support their public engagement goals, so it should do at least one of the following:
- empower people by helping them to access, use, respond to, and/or participate in health research and innovation
- improve health research by making it more people-centred, to better understand people’s experiences and draw on that knowledge
- help people to value and think critically about science, health research, innovation and the role these play in society.
