The Centre for Public Engagement (CPE) runs internal funding schemes, including seed funding to fund public engagement, community engagement and Public and Patient Involvement and larger grants.
Other funding sources
The National Co-ordinating Centre for Public Engagement has an extensive list of funding opportunities for public engagement here, we also have a CPE funding opportunities page featuring a range of grants. The Centre for Public Engagement can help with writing applications and advising on activity.
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.
