COVID-19: working with our grant-holders

By Nuffield Foundation

We are an open, collaborative and engaged funder and our aim is always to support our grant-holders to deliver successful projects that have a positive impact on people’s lives.

We understand that the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and the uncertainty and disruption it creates may have an impact on your ability to deliver your Nuffield-funded project as originally proposed. If you find this is the case, please get in touch with us at the earliest opportunity and we will work with you to determine the best way we can support you to achieve the objectives of your project. We fund a diverse range of projects and will respond to each enquiry on a case-by-case basis rather than by issuing generic guidance. We will endeavour to be flexible wherever possible and to respond promptly to all enquiries.

We have cancelled all events at the Nuffield Foundation until further notice. During this time, we will explore ways we can continue to convene our audiences, and to engage them with our work, without having face to face meetings and events. 

We are fortunate at the Nuffield Foundation to be able to work from home and all our staff are now working remotely, contactable by phone or email in the usual way.

Changes to our application timetable

We will continue our assessment of all funding applications currently underway, including outline applications submitted by the 16 March 2020 deadline. However, we are mindful that applicants may wish to reconsider their proposals in light of the pandemic and are encouraging them to adjust and resubmit should that be the case.

For future funding rounds, we are keen to give applicants the time they need to prepare proposals in light of the fundamental changes to our society. We will therefore extend some deadlines to give applicants more time and will publish an updated timetable shortly. In the meantime, all application information can be found on the funding page of our website. You can also sign up to our newsletter to keep in touch with our work.

We improve people’s lives by funding research that informs social policy, primarily in EducationWelfare and Justice. We also fund student programmes that give young people skills and confidence in science and research.

We offer our grant-holders the freedom to frame questions and enable new thinking. Our research must stand up to rigorous academic scrutiny, but we understand that to be successful in effecting change, it also needs to be relevant to people’s experience.
