"We see the Research Grant programme as a fundamental part of our role to make sure that everyone within Shropshire realises that their voice really does count."
Daphne Lewis, Healthwatch Shropshire chair
The Healthwatch Shropshire Research Grant Fund is an opportunity for community and voluntary sector groups and organisations to apply for funding to undertake a piece of research into people experiences of health and social care services in Shropshire. Each year we have £12,000 to award to projects between £1,000 and £4,000.
Each year the theme of the grant and its accompanying conditions varies slightly. It is important that anyone interested in applying uses the documentation of the relevant year. Please see the Grant Funded Research lists for examples of what to expect.
Anybody wishing to discuss the awards or the Research Grant fund is welcome to contact Healthwatch Shropshire for more information.
