Funding to support social care innovation in London

A new fund has been opened to support London boroughs as they design and test now, innovative approaches to how they can improve adult social care in the city.

The funding is managed by the London Office of Technology and Innovation (LOTI) and contains £200,000 to be split between two projects, each getting £100,000. Submissions are open to the 24 London boroughs that are members of LOTI, with the winners benefitting from access to advice and hands-on support from LOTI’s team, as well as professional networks on information governance, data analysis and technology development.

Director of London Office of Technology, Eddie Copeland, said;

“This fund is an exciting opportunity to support innovative approaches to delivering adult social care in the capital.

“We’re particularly keen to see projects focused on prevention, that empower residents and social care worker, and encourage collaboration between different sectors or groups. We look forward to seeing the submissions and working with the winners to develop their project next year.”

Projects will be required to address one or more of the following themes, as well as involving at least two different boroughs, demonstrating the ways that improve use of technology and data can benefit Londoners that use adult social care services. The themes are:

  • Better residential and care home
  • Better care at home
  • Better community support models

Cllr Nesil Caliskan, London Councils’ Executive Member for Health, Wellbeing and Adult Care, said:

“Boroughs are determined to delvier the high-quality adult social care that Londoners deserve.

“Making better use of technology and data is crucial to the future of adult social care in the capital and addressing the challenges the sector faces. It’s great to have LOTI focused on this as a priority issue and encouraging innovation and collaboration between the boroughs.”
