This fund from the Joseph Rowntree Foundation is looking to change the way people think about dementia. There are a number of different angles the research could be looked at leaving it open for work from both the Faculty of Heath and the FACT. One of the themes they are interested in includes languages, images and stories around dementia.
Funding Body: Joseph Rowntree Foundation
Scheme: Reframing dementia in the 21st century: challenging thinking and stimulating debate
Overview: This call supports one or two projects to influence how people think, talk, write about and portray dementia. Projects are for a duration of 18 to 22 months. The aim is to challenge attitudes, understanding and behaviours around dementia that reinforce stigma, isolation and exclusion. The foundation seeks to support the future development of policy, practice and research, and to improve societal attitudes and ultimately the quality of life of people with dementia.
Budget: Projects will be supported with a budget of up to £50,000
Deadlines: 06 Nov 13
