Fund re-opening in April 2016:
We have had to take the difficult decision to temporarily suspend our Child Development Fund from January 2015 through to April 2016. The Waterloo Foundation therefore will not be reviewing any new proposals submitted to the Child Development Fund under our research, dissemination or intervention streams until after April 2016. Nor will we be issuing calls for applications relating to any of our key areas of interest, as we have done previously.
The Foundation remains interested in and ready to support work in the important and ever-changing field of neurodevelopmental conditions. This decision does not reflect a change in the level of our interest, or indeed any concern about the quality of our applications. Instead, we have made this considered decision on the basis of likely staff capacity for the forthcoming funding year.
We are very pleased to be able to say with some confidence that we will be looking to re-open the Child Development Fund to new applications in early 2016, and would encourage any interested potential applicants to check back to this page from around April 2016, at which time we hope to issue a further update. In the meantime, please visit this page for other potential sources of funding.
For all of our existing grantholders and applicants-in-process, it remains ‘business as usual’; please do continue to liaise with your Fund Manager as normal.
For any new potential applicants to the Foundation, if you have questions or queries then do feel free to contact our office via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Trustees and staff of the Waterloo Foundation thank you for your patience with us during this period, and we very much look forward to re-opening the Fund in 2016.
