The resources of Research Autism are currently fully committed to supporting our existing priority projects including projects related to sleep, employment, behaviour, mentoring and other interventions. We are therefore unable to consider new applications for funding at this current time.
We will be outlining our new priority projects and requesting expressions later in 2013.
Research Autism was set up with the principle intention of funding research into interventions in autism. Our income is derived from a number of sources including grants and donations from Charitable Trusts and Foundations, and companies; fundraising from events; and donations from individuals.
Our intention is to move to a position whereby we will have available a significant pool of funding from which to support applications for research. Until such a fund is established, we will be actively fundraising from the sources mentioned for those projects which we have reviewed and agreed to support. Therefore, it is likely that there may be some time lag between a project becoming approved and funding to implement it being made available.
NIHR supports and funds outstanding individuals, working in world class facilities, conducting leading edge research focused on the needs of patients and the public. NIHR welcomes applications in the area of autism research. Research Autism is working with NIHR to encourage and promote the submission of high quality research proposals in the field of autism.
As part of its aim to improve to quality of submissions, NIHRís Research Design Service provides help to those preparing research proposals for submission to peer-reviewed funding competitions for applied health or social care research. The advice is provided free of charge and is available through use of online resources and consultations with experts.
