Opportunity profile: Embedding inclusivity in women’s health

When writing a Wellbeing of Women grant application, diversity of perspective is essential

Top tips

  • Involve patients when crafting your bid and ensure that your representation of women is inclusive and diverse.
  • Wellbeing of Women is keen to fund taboo topics and research into conditions affecting quality—not just quantity—of life.
  • The charity favours research with the potential for clinical impact within five years of project completion, but this can include fundamental research.
  • Have your lay section read by a layperson.
  • Grants should be multidisciplinary; consider what expertise is needed to give the research the best chance of success.
