COVID-19 and industrial action

The Trust is aware of two issues currently affecting the UK research community: COVID-19 and industrial action by UCU members.

These issues are evolving and may affect academic activities funded by Leverhulme. The Trust will continue to take its usual pragmatic approach, and will allow reasonable changes to budget lines and/or no-cost extensions to grants, to enable grant holders to manage their research in the best way for their circumstances.

We do however ask that you contact us at grants@leverhulme.ac.uk to agree extensions and budgetary changes in advance.
