Market Development Fund - Innovation funding

Do you have an innovative idea that you can’t get off the ground for the sake of a small injection of funding?

Are you doing something new and innovative that others could adopt for their business?

We recognise that innovation in the market is generated by providers working differently in their local area.  We want to allow for these opportunities to be developed and have allocated part of the market development fund to support this.  This funding will be available to support innovative work in adult social care and will be focused on the market shaping priorities quality, value for money and resilience.

We expect to award small amounts under this section – up to £3,000.  We will consider all ideas on their merits, so if you have an innovative idea please contact Colin Penfold, Business Lead for Market Development at
