Commissioned research: Baby Check App

The Lullaby Trust is inviting applications from research institutions to improve the Baby Check app, which helps carers who are worried their baby is unwell. This funding is for commissioned research, meaning we have a set amount available with specific work to be carried out. The funding is available to a) revise and update the Baby Check App, b) validate its use by parents in the community and c) promote updated version of the App with parents during antenatal, childbirth and postnatal care. The work should take place between early 2022 and Sep/Oct 2023. A grant of up to £82,911 is available.

Please read the brief and terms and conditions, and the application form and supplementary form (both are required) is also below.
