We run two annual events, often in collaboration with other organisations (industry, NIHR CRN North East & North Cumbria, NHS Trusts) to promote research opportunities and enable past small grants scheme awardees to disseminate their findings.

We also run a small grants scheme in collaboration with the CAHPR Yorkshire hubs where we award up to £1000 to 5 novice researchers to undertake a small research project which has the potential to inform clinical practice. 


Simplicity is key. The research process can seem overwhelming, having good support links and access to others with research experience is a great help. The award scheme has given me the boost to get involved and dip my toes into the research pool to enhance my practice.
