Funding

In line with our strategic intentions, The Elizabeth Casson Trust offers funding support and development opportunities to qualified occupational therapists to further the profession of occupational therapy. Opportunities are open primarily to occupational therapists in the United Kingdom but we also accept international requests for some awards (see each award page for further information).

Applications for courses, designing your own learning events, innovation awards and pump-primer research awards are received year round; others such as applications for conferences, postgraduate studies and international scholarships awards have specific windows for applying so please plan your development activities in plenty of time.

If you have any questions not answered in our FAQs, please contact Pamela Anderson at secretary@elizabethcasson.org.uk.

Case Studies

“I received funding from the Elizabeth Casson Trust in order to support my attendance to the Braintree Cognitive Rehabilitation Course. This was a two day course that provided very detailed teaching on the assessment and treatment methods for cognitive impairments following brain injury. I work on the impatient stroke service at Derby Hospitals and a large part of my role as clinical specialist is to ensure we provide a high quality standard of care from an OT perspective with our patients. This course has provided me with a great knowledge base in order to structure assessment and treatment for our patients. It enables me to think clearly and systematically when using my clinical judgement on what impairments are affecting the patient and how this can be treated.
