UKRI Funding Call

UKRI Funding Call

The funding call for the next phase of the NCCH supported research programme Mobilising Community Assets to Tackle Health Disparities’, led by NCCH trustee and adviser Prof. Helen Chatterjee MBE, has been released. This phase of the research focuses on the formation of partnerships and consortia between academia, health systems, practitioners and community assets with a view to reducing disparities in health outcomes.

Full details of the call can be found below:

UKRI Funding opportunity: Building Community Research Consortia to tackle Health Disparities

We would like to bring your attention to a new funding opportunity that may be of interest. Led by AHRC, with support from MRC, NERC and ESRC, Building Community Research Consortia to tackle Health Disparities opened for applications on the UKRI website on 3rd May 2022 (Deadline: 20th June 2022).

This call is part of the Mobilising Community Assets to Tackle Health Disparities programme. Projects funded through this call will improve our understanding of the drivers of deprivation across communities, develop and test new scalable models for Integrated Care Systems (ICS) (or devolved equivalents) to interface with community assets, and thereby contribute to level up health outcomes and create healthier communities across the whole of the UK.

Up to £250,000 (fEC) is available for diverse but complementary groups of academics (for example in public health research, health economics, community asset research or health equity research) to work together with non-academic partners, community organisations and health system partners, to build a research consortium at ICS (or devolved nation equivalent) level.

A webinar organised by AHRC and led by Professor Helen Chatterjee (Programme Director, Health Disparities) will take place on Tuesday 24th May from 1pm to 2.30pm.

You can register to attend HERE. The registration form also offers you a chance to find links with potential collaborators if you permit to your information being shared.

As part of the ongoing research we are keen to understand barriers and enablers to community and health partnership working – to this end we would be very grateful if you complete this survey:
