Research by design

At the RDS, we help people preparing research proposals for submission to peer-reviewed funding programmes in applied health and social care. See if you are eligible for support. We cover the counties of Kent, Surrey and Sussex.

Advice and support is provided free of charge and is available through research clinics, face-to-face, telephone and email.
