Research is one of the fundamental pillars that supports and maintains best practice in all forms of social and health care. It provides evidence to inform decisions, directs policy development and upholds the sector's credibility.
Abbeyfield have always championed the needs and rights of older people and we see the potential to fund research as an extension of this. It's our research foundations aim to develop high quality services for older people through supporting individuals at varying levels in their career, from PhD students at the beginning of their research journey to established senior academics looking to support their own research teams.
The 2016/2017 research grants application process will open on the 17th of October 2016.
