[THIS FUND HAS NOW CLOSED]
We are excited to be managing the assessment of applications to a new £100,000 ‘Building Collaboration Fund’. Applications open on 4th February 2019, with grants of up to £25,000 available for groups of third sector partners working in collaboration, to improve the social care they provide.
The Fund is a joint initiative of the Coalition of Care and support Providers in Scotland (CCPS) and Scottish Government to support the development of collaborations in the social care sector. It is recognised that effective collaboration helps social care organisations provide better care and support. This is because when groups of organisations come together to improve their offering to the people they collectively serve, those services tend to be more personalised.
The fund is an important learning programme. In addition to grant funding, successful applicants will participate in a series of workshops. The workshops will look at how to overcome some of the barriers and challenges they may face as they collaborate. Knowledge from the different collaborative models and approaches will then be shared, to help inform future collaborations in social care.
All interested applicants can speak with CCPS before they apply. See http://www.ccpscotland.org/hot-topics/collaboration/building-collaboration-fund/ for more information– or contact Emma or Dee to discuss your idea. Dee.Fraser@ccpscotland.org. Emma.Donnelly@ccpscotland.org – (0131) 475 2676.
Applications must be submitted to us online http://sgiz.mobi/s3/Building-Collaboration-Fund-application-form-v2 by 5pm 18th March 2019.
