Disability Research on Independent Living and Learning (DRILL) is currently inviting applications form Disabled people, their organizations, academics and partners with an aim to find out how disabled people, and those with long term conditions, can participate fully in society, achieving independent living.
The program’s aim is to build new evidence on what would enable disabled people to take full part in society – with disabled people in the lead, setting the priorities and co-designing the projects. DRILL has funding to give to research projects and pilot projects.
- Participating in the economy
- Participating in the community and social life
- Participating in civic and public life and more
There are three categories of grant-
- Small research grants which can be up to a value of £40,000 each
- Large research grants which can be up to a value of £100,000 each
- Pilot projects which can be up to a value of £150,000 each
- All projects will definitely need to involve disabled people with lived experience of the topic to be researched.
- All research projects will also all need to involve someone who has good experience of research.
- Pilot projects will need people with good experience of putting proposals into practice and evaluating what happens.
- Applicants might decide to involve other people too – perhaps those responsible for the policy or practice that needs to change.
- Anyone can apply or be involved in a project partnership. This includes organizations in the voluntary sector, the public sector and the private or independent sector.
How to Apply
Applicants can apply for two types of applications, depending on the type of project they are proposing.
Eligible Countries: England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
