Organization: Wellcome

Grant Amount: 250000 Pound

Grant title: Applications invited by Wellcome for Public Engagement Fund  

Deadline: 9th July 2019

This fund enables individuals and organisations to use creative approaches in engaging the public with health research.

Who can apply?

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.

What we’re looking for

We’re looking for creative approaches to engage the public. Your project needs to support our 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.

Awards range from £25,000 to £3 million. Your project funding can last up to three years.

Most of the proposals we receive are for £25,000 to £100,000. If your proposal falls into this range then you must meet our criteria closely to be competitive, be clear about the change you want to achieve, and include a well-considered delivery plan.

We can only support a few grants of between £100,000 and £250,000 each year, so your proposal must aim to bring about significant change. Where possible, it should be backed by evidence, such as a pilot with positive results.

Occasionally, we make grants of over £250,000, where projects have the potential to bring about major, sustainable change. These might be capital projects, ambitious rollouts, or work that could influence the perspectives and actions of a large audience or group of participants. 

Since 2018, we no longer accept applications for grants under £25,000.
