- To encourage and assist people in the field , including families, young people and clinicians, to identify research priorities
- To facilitate and support the development of major research applications to Wellcome, Medical Research Council, National Institute for Health Research and national charitable funding bodies
- To encourage and help clinicians, who are interested, to participate in research, and potentially pursue an academic career path
