The Health Foundation: Covid-19 Research Programme

Deadline for applications: 30th September 2020

The Health Foundation has launched a new research programme, which seeks to understand the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in two distinct areas. This programme aligns with their strategic priorities and complements the existing research funding landscape.

They are prioritising funding for UK-focused projects that explore:

  • how health and social care service delivery has changed in light of COVID-19
  • the impact of COVID-19 on health inequalities and the wider determinants of health.

They are inviting projects to apply for funding of between £100k–£200k per project for a duration of up to 12 months (including set-up time).

Th Health Foundation will fund highly applied research that has direct relevance to policy and practice and welcome applications from multidisciplinary teams combining expertise from a broad range of disciplines.

They want the findings of this research to inform policy and/or service delivery decisions about the future of health and care services, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Applications involving patients, the public and people with lived experience are strongly encouraged.
