Joseph Rowntree Foundation (JRF) are calling for proposals for projects which will help contribute to the development of dementia-friendly communities in Northern Ireland.
JRF are open to a very wide range of ideas and are particularly looking for innovation and impact. They will only support projects which directly and meaningfully involve people with dementia in their design and delivery. They are interested in projects which include a focus on equality and diversity, and on places (rural or urban) and people in poverty.
JRF are open to proposals from a range of thinkers and actors within and outside the dementia field, not only from academics or knowledge-into-practice experts, but also from people with a diagnosis of dementia, carers, community activists, practitioners/providers, artists, etc. They welcome bids which include several partners.
JRF have recently agreed funding for a specific initiative in Wales, and now want to offer similar support to Northern Ireland. They also intend to issue a call for proposals relating to Scotland in the near future.
Depending on the quality and range of proposals received, JRF may commission one or two projects - up to a maximum total value of around £80,000.
The deadline for submitting proposals is 23:59 on Wednesday 30 October 2013.
