New grants programme: High Impact Type 2 Diabetes Interventions

To mark its 20th anniversary the Trust launched a new funding strategy focused on reducing death and the impact of longer-term disability related to non-communicable diseases (NCDs). Despite being highly preventable, NCDs kill over 40 million people each year, the equivalent of 71% of all deaths globally. Over five years, the Burdett Trust will run a series of grant programmes targeting the four main categories of non-communicable diseases. This latest programme invites applications for effective interventions focused on reducing the prevalence and effects of type 2 diabetes.

All projects must be nurse-led and have the nursing contribution to healthcare at their core. Proposals must be well-argued and demonstrate why the project is needed, what benefits and impacts it will deliver and describe how it will generate learning that can be shared, disseminated and adopted more widely. All successful grant holders will be expected to take part in a half-day conference in central London to share their learning and publicise the outcomes of this programme.

Grants awarded within this programme will typically be between £50,000 and £100,000.
