There are a variety of sources of funding available for health and social care research, and we can help you to decide which funder might be most appropriate for your research.
Whilst we primarily assist with the different NIHR funding streams below, we can also help with funding applications to research councils, charities and other national peer reviewed funding programmes.
For further information about the different NIHR funding streams, please visit their website: https://www.nihr.ac.uk/funding-and-support/funding-for-research-studies/how-to-apply-for-funding/identify-the-right-programme.htm
