About Parkinson’s UK

Parkinson’s UK are a charity who are focused on driving better care, treatments and quality of life. Parkinson’s UK’s ultimate ambition is to find a cure, and improve life for everyone affected by Parkinson's.

Parkinson’s UK also provide funding for ground-breaking research to find new and better treatments for Parkinson’s.

The brief

In order to support the research funding, Parkinson’s UK required an online Grant Management System to streamline the management of fund application and allocation.

Replacing a complex offline paper-based system they were using; the new online system was required to enable researchers to apply for specific rounds of funding. Parkinson’s UK would then need to be able to review the applications and award funding using the application.

A key requirement of the web application was to allow submissions using PDF forms. This would allow applicants to work on their responses offline.

What we did

We worked with Parkinson’s UK to understand the required features and workflow of the Grant Management System web application.

Following the scoping phase, we then developed the online Grant Management System including the setup of new grant schemes, managing calls and rounds, applications, peer review process, grant decisions and ongoing process management. The web application was developed to allow for future grant schemes to be easily added as well as allowing Parkinson’s UK to flexibly determine specific requirements of each grant round.

We continue to provide ongoing support, hosting, and development of the web application for Parkinson’s UK.
