When applying to Bowel Cancer UK for funding, please consider how you will ensure that your application is relevant to people affected by bowel cancer.  We have launched a Research Network (consisting of patients and family members) whose role it will be to provide feedback on grant applications during development (both in terms of the language but also the content) and to help shape research.  If you would like to know more about how the network could help with your grant application, please see our website at  or get in touch with us at  Please allow sufficient time (and at least 4 weeks) if you would like feedback prior to submission.
