Whether you're applying for funding or conducting your research, there are many ways we can support you to involve people affected by Parkinson's in a meaningful and timely way. Find out how PPI can benefit your research.
Next step grants
Next step funding is for Parkinson's UK project grants that would benefit from additional funding when:
- a new technique or test arises during the progress of the grant and additional funding is required to make use of it
- an unexpected avenue opens up during the course of the grant which would be valuable to pursue
Next step grants are offered for up to 6 months and for a maximum of £20,000.
For more information read our Information for applicants - Next step funding (PDF, 388KB).
Deadlines and eligibility
Applications may be submitted at any time but must be made at least 6 months before the end of the original project grant.
Next step funding may not be used to 'top up' project grants due to changes in institutional salaries or to extend a grant where poor planning has resulted in a lack of funds or time. Funds will not be awarded for work detailed in the original project grant proposal.
Next step funding is tenable only at the original project grant’s host institution and is subject to the same terms and conditions as the original project grant.

Make sure your research makes an impact
If you have exciting findings, or a paper in the pipeline, we want to help you get your research out there.
So throughout your grant, and after it ends, grantholders are required to advise the Research directorate in advance of upcoming publications. Find out more in our open access publishing policy.
