Disabled grantholders

We're committed to making sure everyone can use our grant processes and attend events like researcher meetings.

If you are disabled or have a chronic health condition, we can offer different types of support during your grant. Tell us what adjustments you need.

For example, we can support you:

  • in completing progress reports and end-of-grant reports, for example by paying for a support worker
  • with reporting your research outcomes on Researchfish
  • when you attend meetings at Wellcome, for example by paying for a British Sign Language interpreter.

For support during your grant, email our information officers at grantenquiries@wellcome.ac.uk or call +44 (0)20 7611 5757.
