Application and Assessment procedures

General

The Trustees consider applications at the quarterly PPEF Trustees’ meetings. Meeting dates can be obtained from the PPEF via Physio First at the Northampton Office at or 01604 684960.

Closing dates for applications will normally be four weeks prior to the meeting.

Applications must be made using the correct PPEF application forms.

8 paper copies and 1 electronic copy of the application documentation should be submitted to the trustees.

It is essential that applicants adhere to the various "Notes for guidance" in order for their applications to be considered for funding by the Trustees. These are indicated in red throughout the application forms.

It is essential that applicants clearly state the reasons why funds are needed, and itemise the costs involved.

The Trustees will give priority to applicants who:

  • work as independent practitioners
  • demonstrate relevance of proposal to the objects of PPEF.
  • provide the evidence base that supports the educational programme or research.

Applicants are advised that failure to provide adequate detail on the application form may seriously disadvantage or delay their application.

The Decision of the Trustees is final and applicants will be informed of the outcome of the Trustees’ meeting as soon as possible.
