Research tender opportunities with NDCS

Posted in News

Please see below details from NDCS’ Research Manager, Nadine Fitzpatrick, about research tender opportunities with NDCS.

“New research tender for NDCS. This one is looking at the experiences of deaf children and young people, and their families, from black, Asian and other ethnic and culturally diverse groups in the UK.

A key focus is the experience of accessing specialist services for deaf children. We hope to capture a range of experiences and where necessary, identify if and how these families could/should be better supported when accessing these services. We would also like to document any examples of good practice. We are particularly interested in early years’ experience and the support received post-identification as we know that this period of a child’s language development is critical for later outcomes in life.

More details about the fund can be found here.

 The funding is for up to £60,000 for a project completed by May 2025. The deadline for applications is the end of this November.

 I am happy to have an informal chat with anyone who would like more information before applying.

In case you have not seen our other research funding opportunity with a deadline of 18th November, here it is:


I look forward to hearing from you and/or your colleagues.

Kind regards,
