About our work

The Maudsley Charity supports the work of South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust and the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience, King’s College London. Since 2010 we’ve committed £25m to funding projects across clinical services, research and local communities.

With funding ranging through supporting patients back into education and work, volunteering in the Trust, to the Maudsley Biomedical Research Centre, we’re here to back better mental health and make a real difference to the lives of the people we fund.

Each year we invite applications for grants in two of our programmes, you can see some examples of the types of funding rounds we run here.

We aim to ensure that money we award is used in the best possible way, and we have worked hard to develop a robust and effective framework to ensure we only fund the best and most credible projects.

We work with a wide range of people to ensure we make informed decisions, drawing on people who have knowledge and expertise in their fields. We are looking for more people to come forward as expert reviewers, volunteering their time (usually between one and two hours) and helping us to decide which projects to fund.

How can you help?

We are looking for people who are prepared to work with us to review our funding applications – this will provide you with the opportunity to find out more about our work and use your expertise to view and comment on applications, using a simple online system.

Best of all, you’ll be supporting worthwhile projects and people which will have a genuine impact of the lives of patients and staff, as well as helping us to make informed and robust funding decisions.

Once you’ve registered – by completing a short questionnaire – we’ll match you to any relevant applications we receive, it might be that you don’t hear from us straight away, but don’t worry we’ll keep your details on file.

We’re looking for people from all walks of life, with a range of skills and experience – scientists, clinical staff, service users and carers to name a few.
