It is a Register4 requirement that you have secured funding for your research project, prior to seeking access to the Register4 database.

If this is not available, or if you are in the process of applying for funds, you can request a ‘letter of support in principle’ from Register4 to assist your funding application.  The letter provides details of the number of Register4 members who meet your selection criteria; and who could, once your application is approved by the Access Committee, be invited to volunteer for your project.

Please note, the letter of support is not a guarantee of acceptance of your project by Register4 and is intended as an indication to the funding bodies of the number of suitable participants who could be invited to volunteer should your project be approved by the Register4 Access Committee. If you would like to request a letter of support in principle, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or contact us on 1800 882 844.
