PSC Support was set up over twenty years ago. Supporting and funding research has always been an important part of our work, thanks to your generous donations.
We are proud of our grant research programme, which has clearly defined and transparent mechanisms in place, and a robust peer-review process to ensure only the highest quality, most worthwhile PSC research is funded.
