The network is running two Plus Projects Funding Calls. Both calls are now closed.
Network Plus Project Funding Call #2: Interventions
This call is now closed. We are currently reviewing the applications and hope to inform applicants of the outcome by early December.
In this second funding call we will commission research that aims to understand:
- What interventions/specific activities reduce loneliness and social isolation in the general population, and whether these interventions/specific activities also reduce the risk of the onset of mental health problems, and/or
- What interventions/specific activities reduce loneliness and social isolation in individuals with existing mental health problems.
We are interested in interventions at individual, group and community levels. Applicants will be asked to demonstrate that their proposed project would integrate multiple disciplines and relevant lived experience perspectives. We strongly encourage collaborations involving the third sector and projects led by Early Career Researchers.
