Deadline: 27 July 2016
The Disability Research in Independent Living & Learning (DRILL) invites applications for its Multi Million Research Programme led by disabled people, to find out how they, and those with long term conditions, can participate fully in society, achieving independent living. DRILL is funded by the Big Lottery Fund and will make grants for projects from anywhere in the UK.
The aim of the programme 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. We’re looking forward to receiving some exciting proposals.
There are 2 types of projects to be funded:
- Research: This is finding out more about something
- Pilot projects: This is testing something out to see how it works
Funding will be provided to projects that:
- have new ideas about how to make life better for disabled people
- are about disabled people’s ideas and what they think is important
- are about disabled people and other people working well together
- find out good information that people can trust and use to make good decisions
- help really change things now and in the future
- are done in a good way and are fair for everyone
- help people learn from each other and do well
- use money in the best way
DRILL projects must be about one of the following 4 themes:
- Participating in the economy, or
- Participating in the community and social life, or
- Participating in civic and public life, or
- Participating in anything!
DRILL provides a grants of up to £5 million funded by Big Lottery Fund.
Disabled people, their organisations, academics and partners from across the UK are invited to apply.
