The Ideas Fund supports collaboration between researchers and communities

For researchers, a unique opportunity to work with communities to explore mental wellbeing in Oldham.

The Ideas Fund is a new grants programme that will enable the UK public to think about, develop and test ideas to help improve mental wellbeing in the area where they live. Vocal is working in partnership with the British Science Association (BSA) to help researchers and community groups to create partnerships and develop ideas for the Fund.

We are interested in hearing from researchers from a wide range of disciplines. You don’t have to specialise in mental health, but your area of work needs to be linked to mental wellbeing (e.g. psychology, physical health, nutrition etc).

Whether you already have an idea, connections with community groups in Oldham, need some help forming a partnership or even if you want to find out if your research area fits the Fund, please get in touch and we’ll get back to you.

Get in touch by clicking ‘Contact Us’ below and tell us a bit more about your idea or the kind of community group you’d like to collaborate with and we’ll get back to you.
