Wellcome Public Engagement Fund

This fund enables individuals and organisations to use creative approaches in engaging the public with health research.

The Public Engagement Fund is open to individuals and organisations (commercial and not-for-profit). Your project must focus on health, although this doesn’t need to be your organisation’s main focus or core activity.

You can be working in the arts, culture, entertainment media, heritage, leisure, education, research, informal learning, social enterprise, non-profit and community sectors, or other fields.

What Wellcome are looking for
Creative approaches to engage the public. Your project needs to support our public engagement goals, so it should do at least one of the following:

  • empower people by helping them to access, use, respond to, and/or participate in health research and innovation
  • improve health research by making it more people-centred, to better understand people’s experiences and draw on that knowledge
  • help people to value and think critically about science, health research, innovation and the role these play in society.

To be successful, your project must also do one of the following:

  • innovate or try new ways of working
  • develop an existing activity where you have evidence that it has been successful, either by exploring ways to make it sustainable or by scaling it up in a cost-effective manner
  • learn from a successful engagement activity delivered by you or others, and replicate it with a new audience, eg a different demographic or location.

We’re especially interested in work which promotes diversity and inclusion, and engages people and communities who are affected by social and economic disadvantage. This work can sit within a wider project or be its main focus. If your project addresses these issues, tell us how it does this, based on your experience and the context you are working in.

If your project takes place in a low- or middle-income country, we particularly want to see how it will strengthen the public engagement skills of the people and organisations involved in developing the project in that country.
