The DRILL 2nd Call for Applications


About DRILL

Disability Research on Independent Living and Learning (DRILL) is the world’s first research grants programme led by disabled people.  It covers the whole of the UK and is funded by the Big Lottery Fund until 2020. DRILL is led in partnership by Disability Action Northern Ireland, Disability Wales, Inclusion Scotland and Disability Rights UK.

 

DRILL gives out grants for research and pilot projects.  Our projects are carried out in co-production with the disabled people and researchers to find new ways to promote independent living for disabled people.  DRILL will build an evidence base that will provide solutions which give disabled people choice and control over our lives in ways non-disabled people take for granted. We will inform future policy and service provision and give a greater voice to disabled people on the issues that affect us.

About the DRILL 2nd Call

  • Tuesday 16 May 2017: the DRILL 2nd Call will open. 
  • Tuesday 8 August 2017: the DRILL 2nd Call will close.

On this date more details of the kind of pilot and research projects we are interested in and how to apply for funding.

 

However, before this we would like to give people the opportunity to start thinking about what DRILL could offer you.

 

The DRILL 2nd Call will be open to applications from all four themes:

  • Participating in community and social life.
  • Participating in civic and public life.
  • Participating in the economy.
  • Participating in anything else.

 

The DRILL Programme are particularly interested in:

  • The themes of civic and public life and the economy.
  • Pilot projects and will also consider small and large research applications.
  • Projects that collect evidence on costs and benefits of a potential solution to influence policy and practice.
  • Projects that have the potential to provide evidence likely to lead to solutions.
  • Projects that considers and addresses intersectionality.

 

We hope that this information and the details provided on the 16 May will help you to decide if applying for DRILL funding would be worth your time and effort.

 

We hope that if that answer is ‘yes’, you will then have the chance to be part of a movement of disabled people who are building an evidence base that will provide solutions which give disabled people choice and control over our lives.

 

General information about DRILL and further details about the 2nd Call (from 16 May 2017) can be found at www.drilluk.org.uk
