CIAG Grants Fund

The grants fund has three aims:

  • To stimulate ‘edge of care’ outreach and prevention activities by: promoting and supporting independence; connecting people to their communities; keeping people healthier for longer; and thereby reducing the need for statutory intervention.
  • To increase sufficiency in the ASC sector across Devon by supporting the market (including personal, residential and unregulated care) to: grow; develop; and diversify, as appropriate.
  • To encourage innovation; take-up of new technology; new delivery models; and partnership developments.
