Research Area

Anxiety UK is committed to raising the awareness and understanding of anxiety disorders. Our aim is to help with research where possible and we receive many requests from individuals conducting research projects. If you are undertaking research in the field of anxiety disorders and would like to recruit participants for your study, or would like to have your research publicised, please complete the research submission form.

We have several listing options including: a listing on our website (receives over 150K visitors a month), a social media listing (we have >50K followers on Twitter and >8000 on Facebook), a listing in our quarterly members magazine (distributed to approx. 1,500 members each quarter) or a combination of any of the above. Please refer to our rates card below for prices and listing options. If you have any specific questions, please email media@anxietyuk.org.uk.

Please note: we are unable to take responsibility for any treatment or experience that participants may undergo should they choose to take up the research listed. The fee for a website listing covers the listing to remain in place for 3 months, after this time, you can either terminate your listing, or pay for another 3 month period.

Anxiety UK’s policy is to assist research at post-graduate level where the work involved will raise the profile of anxiety disorders and increase understanding and treatment. Unfortunately, we cannot help with undergraduate research projects.

Anxiety UK to launch new Research Fund

Over the years, Anxiety UK has supported researchers with a range of research projects by assisting with the participant recruitment as well as collaborating directly with large research projects focused on improving treatment and services with people experiencing anxiety. We are keen  to develop and expand our interest and support for research into anxiety disorders and for the first time this year, are launching a new ‘Anxiety UK Research Fund’ to support initially, small research projects with a view to furthering understanding of anxiety disorders  and ultimately, improving outcomes for our client group.
