Neurological Framework funding: form and guidance

68.8 kB


In December 2019, we launched the Neurological care and support: framework for action 2020 to 2025 and announced £4.5 million of funding over 5 years to deliver the Framework’s commitments. 

We are now inviting funding proposals linked to implementing the Neurological Framework.

NHS Boards, Health and Social Care Partnerships and the Independent sector including third sector organisations/charities can apply.

There are no limits or restrictions on the amount of funding each application can bid for. We wish to provide organisations with as much flexibility as possible to develop high quality and robust collaborative/innovative proposals that realistically can be delivered within the timeframes.

What you can apply for

Organisations can submit more than one application for different projects if they can demonstrate the capacity to deliver more than one project within the timeframe.  

You can apply for funding for:

  • 2020 to 2021 - short term projects that can be started immediately and delivered by March 2021. The total fund for this period is up to £500,000 and cannot be carried over into the next financial year (2021 to 2022)
  • 2021 to 2022 - longer-term projects that can start in April 2021 and conclude by March 2022. Up to £1 million is available in 2021 to 2022

The deadline for applications is 6 September 2020.

We may decide not to allocate all of the available funding for projects in 2021 to 2022 in the first round. There may be a further funding round in 2021 to 2022, subject to the number of projects successful in round 1, emerging priorities in coming months and progress made in implementing the Neurological Framework over the next six to nine months.
