Research Programme for social care funding call

In September 2023, the NIHR Research for Social Care (RfSC) call will be replaced with the NIHR’s new Research Programme for Social Care (RPSC), with the programme’s first call launching on 27 September.

The new £10M programme will fund research which generates evidence to improve, expand and strengthen the way social care is delivered for users of care services, carers, the social care workforce, and the public.

RPSC will fund research focused on improving social care for both adults and children. The programme is encouraging applications from researchers at all stages of their careers. Funding will be available for a wide range of social care research topics and research designs. Applicants in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland will be eligible.

NIHR are holding an event for the first call launch:
