Final call for applications for DRILL funding is now closed

The Disability Research on Independent Living & Learning Programme’s (DRILL) final open call for applications is now closed.  DRILL is fully funded by the Big Lottery Fund and is delivered in partnership by Disability Action, Disability Rights UK, Disability Wales and Inclusion Scotland.

 

DRILL is led by disabled people and funds coproduced research and pilot projects to find solutions about how disabled people can live as full citizens and take part socially, economically and politically.  To date almost £1.5 million has been committed to projects in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.  Find out more on these projects here.

 

In the final funding call which closed on 8 August 2017, we received over 100 applications from across the UK.  DRILL will now begin a process of assessing the applications by using our National Advisory Groups (NAGs) and the Central Research Committee (CRC).  It is anticipated that applicants will be aware of the outcome by the end of November 2017.

 

Thank you for your interest in the DRILL Programme.
