Research for Social Care (RfSC) Residential Grant Development and Writing Retreat

The purpose of the Retreat is to give busy professionals dedicated time to rapidly progress their social care research proposal to be submitted to the NIHR RfSC Research Programme in January 2023.

The Retreat will provide a supportive environment for teams of two or three people, to develop high quality NIHR RfSC research proposals. It is encouraged (but not essential for attendance at the Retreat) that a member of the wider research team is a social care professional employed in England. Successful applicants will be offered a free place at the retreat which will include food and accommodation*.  More details can be found here.

Deadline for receipt of application forms is 14 January 2022.

Applications will be reviewed competitively and places awarded to those with the most promising proposals. Support from your local RDS is available and applicants are strongly advised to contact them as soon as possible. Request advice and support from the RDS in the North West here.

Those attending the Retreat will have access to a range of RDS advisers while developing their proposals. Away from the workplace, they will have protected time to work intensively on their proposals. Continued support from the RDS will be essential in preparing your application for submission to the NIHR RfSC programme.
