Alzheimer’s Research UK Inspire Grants available for dementia projects

Alzheimer’s Research UK is inviting expressions of interest for public engagement projects that build knowledge and engage audiences around dementia and brain health. Grants of up to £25,000 are available to support the projects, which must be deliverable during the pandemic.

Alzheimer’s Research UK are offering grants of up to £25,000 to support public engagement projects that:

  • engage with under-served audiences on the topic of dementia, including minority ethnic communities, marginalised or socioeconomically disadvantaged people;
  • build knowledge and engage the public with the topic of brain health; and/or
  • engage and create dialogue with people about the progress being made in dementia research.

Applicants must complete an expression of interest online by 5 August (first stage).

Ideas do not need to be a fully formed proposal at this stage, but should outline what you would like to do, the purpose or need for it, the outcomes you want to achieve, and what partners or expertise you are seeking to be able to deliver it.

Relationship building will be facilitated during the second stage of the application process. All projects must be deliverable during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Inspire Funding provides funding for projects that engage the public with dementia and the life-changing research going on into the condition. The scheme is part of Alzheimer’s Research UK’s work to engage and empower the public by improving understanding of dementia and sharing the benefits of dementia research. They want to support new perspectives, talent and expertise to shed a spotlight on this important issue, and the scheme is open to anyone with the passion and skills to make that possible.

Three funding tiers available:

Bronze up to £5,000
Silver up to £15,000
Gold up to £25,000
