How we're ensuring research aligns with the priorities of people with neurodevelopmental conditions

People with neurodevelopmental conditions, and particularly those with more than one, are frequently excluded from research. We're calling for greater investment in research that aligns with the needs and priorities of people with neurodevelopmental conditions - including research that spans across diagnostic boundaries.

I want to partner on an application

We are happy to provide in-kind support and partnership for research proposals that align with our mission and values. Each proposal is considered on a case-by-case basis. Due to our limited capacity, we can only partner on applications which would reimburse us for the costs associated with partnership. Where possible, please allow five working days before your application deadline to ensure we can approve the partnership on time.

As a coalition of charities, we are currently unable to provide direct funding for research. However, some of our member organisations are research funders and may be able to help. Please contact them directly if possible.

See our Partnerships Policy for more information on how we choose partners.

Embracing Complexity Research Network

We're currently in the process of setting up an Embracing Complexity Research Network for researchers and research organisations with a shared interest in improving the lives of people with neurodevelopmental conditions.

If you would like to join, please e-mail us and outline your key research interests to help us tailor contact in future.

Embracing Complexity in Research

Our Emerging Minds Cross-Sector Placement report highlights how siloed working, mismatched priorities and lack of funding for studies across multiple conditions prevent people with NDCs from getting the full benefit from research. Find out more on our news page.
