Aims

The Evidence into Practice 2019 programme aims to support experienced teams based in the UK, who have previously received funding from the Health Foundation and whose work has resulted in actionable findings that are applicable to health and care, including social care, practice and/or policy.

We have £400,000 of funding available and are looking to support up to eight teams with up to £50,000 each. The funds will support teams to develop innovative ways to promote these findings to those who influence, plan and deliver health and care services.

The programme is open to projects that have produced translatable findings in one of our strategic priority areas.

The deadline for completed applications is midday on Thursday 31 October 2019.
