In July 2014 the Scottish Government launched the Integrated Care Fund. This fund relates to adult care and support services and is intended to support the delivery of improved outcomes from health and social care integration and help drive the shift of care towards prevention and tackling inequalities.
The ICF will only be available for 1 year (2015/2016). The amount of funding allocated to North Ayrshire through this fund is £2.89 million. The fund will support partnerships to focus on prevention, early intervention and care and support for people with complex and multiple conditions, particularly in those areas where multi-morbidity is common in adults under 65, as well as in older people.
We will particularly welcome ideas that will help to address health inequalities across North Ayrshire.
Further information and details of how to submit ideas can be found on the Health and Social Care page of our website.
If you wish your idea to be considered for funding from this budget please ensure your project/ service meets the criteria set out and submit your application to email@example.com
before the 26th of November.
