Remit of the group

The Research Design Service (RDS) exists to provide help for people preparing research proposals for submission to open, national, peer-reviewed funding competitions for applied health or social care research.

The RDS regularly gives feedback to researchers on their applications for funding. As part of this service we are always looking for members of the public who would be willing to read research funding applications and provide comments to the researchers so that they can improve their applications.

Reviewers have the opportunity to review a wide range of projects including both mental and physical health.

Frequency of meetings
