Research Communication and Public Engagement

For our early career fellows we can offer research communication support and training, see our UK Research Communications Stipend for further information.

As a fundraising charity, we encourage researchers to communicate and discuss your work with supporters.

We also encourage researchers to involve people with lived experience in their work. We may also be able to help you publicise your research.

Check our participation, engagement and involvement in research page to find out how we can help.

The Charity Research Support Fund

The Charity Research Support Fund (CRSF) supports charity investment in university research across England, with similar funds provided in the devolved nations. The CRSF allows universities to effectively leverage research funding from charities by enabling the recovery of some of the indirect costs of research that charities do not pay.

The next two or three years will be a significant period of change for the UK’s research sector with the impact of Brexit and COVID-19 and a renewed focus on global research partnerships. The AMRC will be working with its member charities and research institutions to understand better how charity funding partnerships can be placed on a sustainable footing across the range of research activity and types of research institutions.

As a member of the Association of Medical Research Charities (AMRC), JDRF supports the AMRC position statement on supporting research in universities.
