Development fund

IOSH Development funding is available to members or groups of members who have an idea that supports the IOSH vision and helps improve occupational safety and health practice. We can also give funding for feasibility studies, which may lead to the development of an initiative.

You can apply for funding at any time during the year. If you're interested in applying for IOSH development funding:

  • Have a look at the application process
  • Get in touch with us and we'll talk about your ideas
  • Fill in the development fund application form (Word 170KB)- we'll send you an email to confirm we've received your form
  • An IOSH director or head of department will then look at your application and, depending on how much funding you've requested, will advise the Chief Executive and Finance Director, or the Board of Trustees on its suitability.
  • If the application is for less than £5,000, the Finance Director and Chief Executive will make a decision.. For development funding of £5,000 or more, it will be the Board of Trustees who decide. Typically, this process takes around eight to ten weeks.

We'll let everyone who applies know the outcome they reach.
