DHSC has launched the Carers Innovation Fund. The fund aims to support accessible, carer-friendly communities and public services and also seeks to provide evidence on effective interventions to support carers. Applications to recieve funding are welcomed from a mix of sectors, including the voluntary and community sector, small and medium enterprises (SMEs).
The fund seeks to identify and promote creative and innovative models that look beyond statutory services to ensure that carers are:
• better recognised and connected
• better able to juggle working and caring
• better able to look after their own health and wellbeing
There is a webinar on the 19th June that potential bidders can register for.
