SPCR Engagement and Dissemination grant
- Linking with awareness campaigns

The NIHR School for Primary Care Research (SPCR) has a track record of funding high quality primary care research. The SPCR is committed to increasing engagement and dissemination of its funded research and raise awareness of primary care research.

As such, the SPCR is launching a funding call for engagement and dissemination activities with non-academic audiences based on SPCR funded research. Grants are up to £800. Activities may be public talks, hands-on activities in a community setting, information stands in public spaces or workshops with (non-academic) professionals. Creativity in the types of activities proposed is warmly welcomed.

The activity should be linked to an existing national or local health awareness campaign. Examples of national campaigns can be found here and here. These overviews are not exhaustive and applicants are welcome to find their own awareness campaign, as long as these are organised by a non-profit organisation. More information can be found in the guidance notes below.

To apply for a grant, submit an application by Monday 24 February 2020 to the SPCR Patient and Public Involvement and Engagement Officer, Esther van Vliet ( Only submissions using the template below will be considered for funding.
