The Health Foundation has launched a new £2m programme which will explore the potential for using technology to enable care at home and in the community.
The Tech for Better Care programme will support up to six teams from across the UK over 18 months. We will support teams to develop, test and pilot care that focuses on the caring and enabling relationships needed between those who deliver and those who receive care, and that is proactive in supporting people to live a better life where possible.
Invitation to apply
The charity is inviting care providers to apply for funding of up to £30,000 to participate in phase one of the programme, and then the most promising ideas will progress to phase two and phase three.
This programme is for care providers that want to use the opportunity of funding and practical support to take a seed of an idea and develop it, test it, improve it, and then pilot it. Therefore, applications must be led by an organisation that is responsible for delivering care at home, in a residential setting or in the community.
Care providers can be NHS organisations, community interest companies, charities, social enterprises, local authorities or independent private providers.
Organisations should be UK-based, and the charity welcome applications from England, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland.
How to apply
The programme is now open for applications on and will close at 17:00 on Thursday 29 June 2023.
