Funding Available for Innovative Projects that Engage the Public with Dementia – 31st May 2019 (UK)

Alzheimer’s Research UK has announced that the closing date for The Inspire Fund is 11.59 pm on the 31st May 2019. The programme provides funding for innovative projects that engage the public with dementia and the life-changing research going on into the condition. This new funding scheme is working to tackle misconceptions around dementia and to promote the importance of dementia research and will support new perspectives, talent and expertise which sheds a spotlight on this important issue.

Three tiers of funding are available:

  • Bronze up to £5,000
  • Silver up to £15,000
  • Gold up to £30,000

Applications are invited from organisations and people with ideas, passion and the ability to realise innovative public engagement projects, either from inside or outside the research community, those with a track record in dementia engagement and those looking to apply their skills to this issue for the first time.

A broad range of projects and ideas will be considered, such as those utilising digital technology, powerful storytelling, art-science collaborations, performances, workshops or other events. Applicants are encouraged to forge links with collaborators or groups to grow the scale of their ideas.

Projects must take place in the UK and be completed, and funding awarded within 1 year of the award being made.
