KISI Active Partnership Programme

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

KAPP 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 and creative practitioners. 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.

Full applications will be required by 30 November 2021 and submitted to
