  Evaluating new technologies for promotion of healthy active ageing: using smartphone apps and sensors to promote activity- acceptability and adherence measurement?
  Prof C Todd, Dr E Boulton, Dr H Hague
Applications accepted all year round

  Feasibility of delivering group psychological support to stroke survivors in community settings
  Dr E Patchwood, Prof A Bowen, Dr S Knowles
Applications accepted all year round
Supporting people to come to terms with persisting disability and life after stroke is a high priority for stroke research. There is an urgent need for evidence-based, clinically and financially effective psychological interventions that can be feasibly delivered for community-based stroke survivors.
