'Reaching Out to Carers' Innovation Fund
A new 'Reaching Out to Carers' Innovation Fund has been announced by the Department of Health. The fund will allow forty or more grants of up to £25,000 to voluntary sector organisations to encourage innovation in 'reaching out to carers'.
The thrust of this initiative is to get voluntary organisations to explore new ways of reaching carers early. It aims to engage with organisations that work with specific groups of people using services, to explore ways of better working with their carers at the same time.
The deadline for applications is in mid-November 2010.
