Scheme remit

This scheme aims to support capacity and capability building in social care research by funding high-quality research projects with clear relevance to social care service users, carers, practitioners and policy makers. Research funded under this scheme should provide robust evidence to support the efficient and effective organisation and delivery of social care services in Wales, and/or improved service user or carer wellbeing.

Priority areas

All social care projects meeting the general remit of the scheme, are eligible for consideration. However, Health and Care Research Wales particularly welcomes applications addressing the following priority areas:

  • Children who are looked after, and reducing the need for children to be in care
  • People with dementia
  • Care and support at home

Applicants should indicate in the relevant part of the application form if their project proposals address a priority area and explain how it does so. Where applications address one or more of the priority areas, applicants should make this clear in their responses.

Further details of remit, eligibility and priority areas can be found in the guidance notes.
