The Health Foundation has launched a new £300,000 funding programme for projects which demonstrate how data analytics can be used to improve social care and help the social care sector respond to COVID-19 and its aftermath.
Through the Strengthening Social Care Analytics programme, funding of up to £60,000 will be available to support up to five projects across the UK that can present the effective use of data in improving outcomes for vulnerable people and building a resilient, safe workforce.
Proposals must address three key priorities:
- Improving the quality of social care for cohorts of people that experience the worst outcomes.
- Building a resilient, safe workforce.
- Understanding the lived experience of people needing social care.
Teams must be prepared to share their learning with other social care analytics teams.
A webinar will be held on the 10th September to discuss the programme.
To apply, social care providers and commissioners, including domiciliary care providers, must complete an expression of interest form by 12pm on the 2nd October 2020.
