Research Tender

The Judi Meadows Memorial Fund is delighted to issue our first research specification. This is an open tender and we warmly invite applications from interested parties.

Please note the deadline for applications is 31 July 2010 and we will be awarding a grant(s) by 31 October 2010 following the completion of peer review.

The research specification is available here.

In summary, we are interested to fund:

  • Research that investigates one or more areas which affected Judi – depression, suicide, tinnitus and the management of mental illness in general practice
  • Research that addresses depression and tinnitus as this seems to be an under investigated area
  • Research that does not replicate existing programmes of study, but instead compliments other investigations or demonstrate why pilot work is important as a springboard to a larger scale research programme
  • Research which includes the active involvement of service users and/or carers are particularly welcomed

We will fund:

  • Researcher(s) with an interest in, and track record of, using research to influence policy and practice and be able to demonstrate how this research may be able to effect wider change
  • Researcher(s) who have the intention to use this study to undertake additional programmes of research on the topic area.

Applications from PhD students are invited. Please ensure full details of the project supervisor are included.

We look forward to providing an update once we have reviewed the submissions.
