Partnership Grants


Social Care Action Fund

The Social Care Action Fund answers the need to catalyse a wave of new research so we can understand what high-quality social care looks like for autistic adults and how it can be delivered well in the real world. Autistica will deliver this through its partnership with the National Institute for Health Research. Over the last year, the cycle two development grant has been awarded to Dr Georgia Lockwood-Estrin – “Bridging the gap for services: Developing an autism and homelessness toolkit and training package”. Four of five proposals have now been awarded seed funding with Dr Mary Stewart of Heriot-Watt University and research on “support autistic young people in transitions to adulthood” receiving the additional £300,000+.
