The network is planning two Plus Projects Funding Calls. Our first funding call is now open.
Network Plus Project Funding Call #1: Pathways
This funding call is now open. The closing date for applications is Friday 31st January 2020 at 5pm.
The purpose of this funding call
In this first funding call we will commission high quality research that looks at understanding what the experience of loneliness and social isolation is like for individuals with mental health problems, and what the nature of the relationship is between loneliness/isolation and mental health problems. We strongly encourage interdisciplinary and cross-sector approaches that incorporate third sector, practitioner and particularly lived experience perspectives. We welcome applications led by Early Career Researchers (see FAQs for more details) and will fund at least two projects led by lived experience researchers (across the two funding calls).
Event for potential applicants
We held an event on 13th November, to support everyone who is interested in putting in an application. You do not need to have attended this event to make an application, and all the information provided at the workshop is on our Network Events page.
Our website also contains a range of resources on our Network Events and Resources pages that we hope applicants will find helpful, including presentations from network events and reference lists of published papers and reports regarding loneliness and social isolation in mental health.
Full details of this funding call can be found in the documents below. The Frequently asked questions will be updated regularly.
If you have any queries regarding this call, or you would like to discuss your application, please email the Network Coordinators: Ellie.email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
