Child development


Key priorities of the Child Development fund

Within the Child Development Fund, we are interested in the psychological and behavioural development of our children. In particular, we have a focus on neurodevelopmental disorders (NDDS), their common co-occurrence and the factors that influence them. We want to understand why and how brains develop differently and what we can do to help children and families thrive.

To this end the core focus of the Child Development fund is:

  • To support academic research in typically underfunded areas (related to our interest in neurodiversity),
  • To help disseminate these findings.
  • We also provide smaller grants for practical projects directly supporting children and families in Wales.

For more information about our interest in neurodiversity and the brain see Our Vision page.
