Events to Support your Funding Application

Our funding call is now CLOSED. The deadline for applications was 21 February 2020.

We have a regularly updated FAQ page and we encourage people with other queries about the funding call to get in touch via email on However, we also wanted to provide direct support to help you develop your funding applications.

Research Challenge Webinars

We hosted three webinars on the Funding Call and the Research Challenges which the Call covers. You can read more here about our work with Young Minds and the Centre for Mental Health to engage stakeholders in developing these Research Challenges.

These were really helpful in providing an opportunity for discussion around the Research Challenges and what we hope to achieve.

Proposal Development Workshops

We also held two workshops to answer questions about the funding call and to help teams develop their proposals. These events provided an opportunity for formative feedback from the Emerging Minds team and stakeholders. We also heard from our reviewers with lived experience about what they would be looking for in a proposal.


We wanted to make sure that as much information was available as possible and so we recorded a special edition of the podcast for people unable to attend our workshops or webinars. We recorded a series of short videos and audio clips providing further information about who we are, what our funding call is all about and how you can go about applying. These are well worth checking out if you’re planning to submit an application.
