Charity funded research is influential and often attracts follow-on funding!

  Created on Monday, 28 Sep 2015. Posted in Funding | Impact

Charities are committed to saving and improving lives through research, and over the last seven years have invested more than £8bn.

Data shows that charities are derisking research: charity-funded projects attract follow-on funding from other charities, government, private and academic funding sources, and attract inward investment from outside the UK.

Charity-funded research also has impact, with over 300 influences on policy and practice reported in the period 2012-14; charity funded research is cited in guidance; people funded by charities provide expert advice to government; and research findings are used to develop new practices.
