KISI Active Partnership Programme

To mark its first anniversary, Keele University’s Institute for Social Inclusion is introducing its Active Partnership Programme (KAPP). This pilot scheme offers seedcorn funding for non-academic members to propose innovative, collaborative projects that address particular aspects of social inclusion.

The pilot is open to the Institute’s network of partners including community and civil society organisations, charities, the public sector, political institutions, faith organisations, education organisations, businesses, creative practitioners and Keele University Professional Services. Proposals should demonstrate a well-defined, deliverable project that examines issues relating to social inclusion or exclusion, explores possible solutions and/or works towards their implementation. The proposed project will include Keele academic collaborators with relevant expertise, although, for this scheme, the non-academic organisations/individuals must be the project’s lead applicant.

Expressions of interest should be submitted using the form below by 2 September 2019. Invited full applications will be required by 31 October 2019, and projects can run from November 2019-July 2020.

For more details about this scheme, see the full guidance below.
