What we fund

Our research and development funding is focused on stimulating and supporting innovative research to better understand alcohol harm and the ways to address it.

Alcohol Change UK is excited to continue funding inspiring work, and we will set out our plans for our research programmes more fully in our new Research Strategy. The current strategy document for 2015 to 2018 published by our predecessor organisation Alcohol Research UK outlines the work we will be building upon.

Over the last 30 years, we have awarded over £24 million in funding to over 900 projects, many of which have made a significant contribution to the evidence base in this area.

At the moment, we are carrying out a programme to identify gaps in key areas of research and potential for innovation. This work will provide a robust evidential and conceptual platform for our research programme from April 2019. Please check back for more information.

We will issue calls for proposals and invite submissions for specific projects. However, we do not accept speculative enquiries for funding and please note that Alcohol Change UK does not fund biomedical research.
