Research and Education Grants
The LSA manages the Lifetime Support Scheme, which was established to provide treatment, care and support to people who have sustained very serious injuries in vehicle accidents, regardless of fault. The purpose of the LSA’s research agenda is to inform the provision of high-quality services to participants in the LSS.
The LSA has awarded grants in 2015–16 and in 2016–17. The LSA are currently working with the successful grant applicants for the 2016–17 round to complete the contracts and the announcement.
The LSA provides funding to individuals and organisations for either:
- programs providing high-quality services to participants of the Lifetime Support Scheme (LSS) and
- research and education in connection with services to participants of the LSS.
LSA’s research priorities:
- Outcome measures for service providers and benchmarking opportunities.
- Quality of brain injury rehabilitation.
- Getting life chances back (including choice and control, making decisions, and dignity of risk).
- Adjustment to injury.
- Advancements in technology.
- Accommodation options.
Currently closed, more information on the next round will be announced soon, with the round expected to open on 1 October.
