Health Foundation seeking Applications for Strengthening Social Care Analytics
The Health Foundation has launched a new programme aiming to fund exemplar projects that demonstrate how data analytics can be used to improve social care.
1000 new grants and donors
COVID-19 is having a profound impact on people needing and using care, and their careers. The analysis is urgently needed to help us understand the problems they are facing and the actions that need to be taken, ahead of a possible resurgence in the virus.
The Health Foundation has explored the key challenges the social care sector is facing in the COVID-19 era. Over the last few months, they have hosted workshops with people who use care services, careers, providers, care technology developers, local authorities, researchers, and membership bodies for providers and for front-line staff. Participants came from England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, from domiciliary care and residential care, and included adults with a range of ages, needs and experiences.
