NOTA Research Grant

To all NOTA members


NOTA Research Grant Scheme 2017-18


The NOTA Research Committee, on behalf of the NOTA Board, is pleased to announce the call for applications for research funding as part of the NOTA Research Grant Scheme 2017-18.


Further to the Scheme announcement at the September 2017 Conference, please see brief details of the Scheme below. A focused thematic approach to applications is required; the Committee and NOTA Board have agreed that applications which broadly address one or both of the following themes will be considered.


  1. Evidence and criteria for the Effectiveness of Existing Treatment Interventions
  2. Prevention and Innovative Practice in the treatment of Sexual Abusers


The detailed application guidelines, and an updated application form can be found on the NOTA Resources webpages of the NOTA website. Prospective applicants are encouraged to review and adhere to the Guidelines carefully.


Applications for funding up to a maximum of £4,000 will be considered, and for up to £1,000 for student applicants. Should there be no student award, funding up to £5,000 will be considered.


The Committee and Board have agreed that a more focused impact statement, outlining how the research will benefit NOTA members or NOTA’s charitable objectives is a requirement; there is a section on the application form for this and reference to this requirement in the Guidelines.


The requirement for a named practitioner to be part of the application has been relaxed, but it remains a firm recommendation.


Applications should be submitted electronically to the e-mail address, and should be accompanied by CVs of applicants, and relevant support documents, such as ethical approvals, where relevant, by 31st March 2018. Please note that this is an extension to the deadline announced in Cardiff.


Applications will be reviewed independently by members of the Research Committee and the Committee will determine outcomes through discussion during April 2018. All applicants will be provided with feedback by the end of May 2018.


Enquiries about the Scheme may be sent to the address.


We look forward to receiving your applications in due course.


Best wishes,


Prof Mitch Waterman

Chair, NOTA Research Committee on behalf of the Committee and NOTA Board
