Funding for Public Engagement in Health and Scientific Research (UK)

Wellcome’s Public Engagement Fund provides grants of between £5,000 and £3 million for activities, projects, creative spaces, people and organisations with great ideas for engaging the public in conversations about health-related science and research. The fund is open to anyone, including those working in the arts, entertainment media, museums and heritage, leisure, sport and tourism, education and informal learning, the community, charity and public sectors.

For 2017, there is a particular interest in proposals that:

  • Explore the impact of a changing environment on health
  • Aim to achieve better health outcomes
  • Test new ways of engaging people with health-related science and research and reach communities in the top 25 per cent most deprived neighbourhoods in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Applications can be submitted at any time and projects can last for up to 5 years.
