Wellcome’s public engagement fund

The Wellcome Trust has re-opened its public engagement fund with a new set of guidance and procedures for grants of between £25,000 and £250,000. The funds are to support projects which engage the public with health, encouraging new approaches and fresh thinking about health and health research.

Successful projects will:

  • innovate or try new ways of working
  • develop an existing activity where you have evidence that it has been successful, either by exploring ways to make it sustainable or by scaling it up in a cost-effective manner
  • learn from a successful engagement activity delivered by you or others, and replicate it with a new audience, eg a different demographic or location.
