Call for technology partners: Social care digital innovation
Building on the success of the Social Care Digital Innovation Accelerator (SCDIA) 2020/21, NHS Digital and the Local Government Association are keen to support innovation to help local government and their care partners develop new digital approaches to enable staff to deliver key health and social care services and it is also an opportunity to support applications in response to COVID-19.
Match funding of up to £300,000 is available from NHS Digital to support local government to quickly get projects off the round. Solutions will be co-funded and co-designed with councils, developed by technology experts and deployed across the sector within tight, but achievable timescales.
CC2i is looking for both Technology Suppliers and Development Partners to support the SCDIA 2020/21 programme. This is a programme looking at the medium to longer term in the adult social care space.
For applications in response to COVID-19 - and recognising that this may be required to be managed within our communities for the foreseeable future - this funding is aimed at initiatives that improve information sharing to support the most vulnerable within our community. Initiatives should also contribute to the stability of our communities in the medium to long term, with a focus on increasing the capability of individuals to maintain their independence through periods of restricted movement.
HOW TO APPLY: APPLICATIONS CLOSE ON 24 APRIL 2020 AND TAKE 20-30 MINUTES TO COMPLETE.
This form is for technology suppliers to outline a product or capability - or an idea for one - that with input from local government and their partners, could provide a solution to support remote and safe access to adult social care services.
Key to the project selection process is that the digital innovation needs to tackle issues that will be shared by many across local government and their public sector partners, to ensure we focus funds on solutions that can be scaled up as widely as possible.
Councils have also been asked to feed into the discovery and development phases to ensure solutions meet real needs. If you are a council, you can share your ideas here.
