Innovation Fund Progress Report April 2017 The Self-directed Support Innovation Fund (2015-2018) aims to support innovation and piloting of different service models as well as help develop the capacity of practitioners and providers to implement Self-directed Support. In Years 1 and 2 of the Fund (April 2015 – March 2017) 21 projects spent a total of £2.35 million developing and undertaking projects, of which £1.2 million was in the year to 31st March 2017.
This report provides an overview of the activities and impact of Innovation Fund projects during Year 2 of the programme. The nature of the Innovation Fund means there is a range of disparate activities being undertaken. For the purposes of this report we have grouped work into themed activity and use some examples of project work to highlight progress in 2016 -17.
