Public Engagement


The Centre for Public Engagement provides funding for public engagement, community engagement and Public and Patient Involvement through our competitive grant schemes:


Other funding sources

We have a list of external opportunities on our website and provide a monthly round-up of following in our newsletter. Sign up to our newsletter here.

The National Co-ordinating Centre for Public Engagement has an extensive list of funding opportunities for public engagement here

The Centre for Public Engagement offer bespoke help with writing applications and advising on activity. Book into one of our Advice Surgeries for further help. 


Costing Public Engagement into Grant Applications

Another source of funding is to request extra funding in a research grant application. Staff are encouraged to include costing for impact activities (which can include engagement activity) as part of the the Pathways to Impact section of many grant rounds. 

This can include costing for consumables for delivery, staffing or other associated costs. Again, the Centre for Public Engagement can advise on how to go about this. Please contact us, or come to an advice surgery to find out more about how we can help.

The Research Impact Team within QMUL can provide support with the generation and capture of impact. They offer strategic advice on how best to plan, generate, evaluate and evidence impact for grant applications, research projects and the REF.
