NIHR Policy Research Programme (PRP)-Mental health services funding call

  Tuesday, 24 Aug 2021 | Funding Deadline

The NIHR funds policy research to enable evidence informed policy making in health and social care. The NIHR Policy Research Programme (PRP) is inviting applications for two calls around the theme of mental health to support policymakers in the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC).


  • Liaison and diversion services for children and young people funding call: This call will focus on the delivery of research to understand how different agencies work together to refer children and young people (CYP) to liaison and diversion (L&D) services and share information about vulnerable CYP.
  • Access assessments for admission to adult medium and low secure services: This call is for the delivery of research to inform decisions about the appropriate use of NHS resource, and establish the principles of access assessments to adult medium and low secure services associated with the most effective use of these resources. There is a need to improve the interface across the whole pathway, including Criminal Justice System and secondary mental health, learning disability and autism services.


Deadline for proposals: 24 August 2021
