Where Else Can We Get Funding?Applications

Child development


Within our Child Development Fund, we are interested in the psychological and behavioural development of our children, and particularly in certain neurodevelopmental conditions and the factors that influence them.  To that end we fund:

For 2019/2020 we have calls for research projects that focus on one of five themes relating to child development: Rolandic Epilepsy; ADHD; DCD (Dyspraxia); sleep and/or exercise; and diet and/or the microbiome.

We are currently inviting applications for research funding within the calls of Rolandic Epilepsy, and ADHD (deadline Sunday 6th October 2019) and look forward to supporting projects that complement our research interests in these areas. As always, we remain particularly interested in research related to neurodevelopmental disorders and their co-occurrence. For more information about the specifics of this call please visit our deadlines page.

**Please note there is a change in the application process and format that we are trialling for this call which we hope will make the application processes speedier for all! For more information regarding the new application procedure, please visit our application guidelines page **

We also fund some non-research practical projects, including
