Disability Research on Independent Living and Learning (DRILL) is a ground breaking UK-wide programme fully funded by a £5 million grant from the Big Lottery Fund. DRILL is the world’s first research and pilot programme led by disabled people and their priorities.
Disability Research on Independent Living and Learning is led in partnership with Disability Action Northern Ireland, Disability Wales, Inclusion Scotland and Disability Rights UK.
Applications are now invited for grants to carry out research and establish pilot projects on subjects reflecting the priorities of disabled people. Partnerships, which include combinations of disabled people, their organisations, academics and potentially others, are expected to come together to develop and submit applications and, if funded, deliver their project through a process of coproduction.
Disabled people will be at the forefront of designing and delivering these projects. The purpose is to build a better evidence base about approaches that enable disabled people to achieve independent living – to have choice and control over their lives in ways non-disabled people take for granted.

Closing Date: 27 July 2016
