What we fund

There are currently no new funding opportunities. Check back soon for more information.

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.

In March 2019, Alcohol Change UK’s board agreed a comprehensive five year work programme for research. We are now finalising the specific themes on which our research will focus, drawing on four in-depth consultation workshops with academics and others; and six rapid evidence reviews which we have commissioned. Once the results of those are available, we will be finalising our research themes and communicating more. So please check back for more information soon.

When new funding opportunities are available, we will issue calls for proposals and invite submissions for specific projects. However, we do not accept speculative enquiries for funding.
