The Big Lottery Fund’s £25 million Research Programme will open in Spring 2007, and will be administered by Momenta and supported by Third Sector First.
The grant programme will fund medical and social research projects across the UK.
Charities and voluntary sector organisations will be able to apply for grants for up to five years from the programme. Because the Big Lottery Fund believes that many of these organisations are not able to carry out research by themselves, the grantmaker is expecting the grants will promote partnerships between the voluntary sector and the research community.
Public sector agency Momenta provides a range of programme management services, including research management, knowledge transfer, best practice, fund management and behaviour change programmes.
Third Sector First is a collaboration of specialists in research and social policy, working primarily in the public and ‘third’ sectors. It has conducted project evaluations in many subject areas, including health, social care, community safety, childcare and addictions.
