DRILL – what does it mean?

‘Disability Research on Independent Living and Learning’ (DRILL) is an exciting new research programme. It is the world’s first major research programme led by disabled people. DRILL is funded by the Big Lottery Fund and will make grants for projects from anywhere in the UK. It will fund projects to carry out research and projects to ‘pilot’ or test things out. The programme will last for 4 years. The first opportunity to apply for a grant will be on 09 May 2016 when the programme opens.
