The new Nuffield Foundation website

By Nuffield Foundation

Over the last 10 years, the Nuffield Foundation website has received more than 57 million visits from more than 16 million users.

In 2017, our new strategy set out ambitious goals to grow the Foundation’s scale and influence. As a result, we refreshed our brand identity to be better aligned with our strategic goals and to pave the way for a more engaging and accessible digital presence.

Following this, we embarked on a website redevelopment project in 2019 with ambitions to:

  • Raise the online profile of the Foundation among its audiences.
  • Increase awareness about our funding opportunities and provide a more accessible path to application.
  • Grow the impact of the research we fund.
  • Present our work in a more visually engaging and accessible format.

An important part of the project has been consultation with our stakeholders, to ensure that the needs of our audiences are at the forefront of our website design and development.  

We launched our new website on 16 December 2019.


What’s new?

  • Fully responsive, mobile-first design that works across all devices.
  • Digital application of our new brand identity.
  • Improved navigation and sophisticated search functionality so users can find and browse content more easily.
  • Eligibility tools for both research funding and Nuffield Research Placement applicants.
  • A new impact section to tell a richer story about the impact of our work on society.

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.


COVID-19 response

Nuffield-funded social scientists are conducting COVID-19 research in real-time, to capture people’s experiences of the social, cultural and economic impacts of the pandemic.
