Inclusion & Participation Grants

Discover Digital is a project to raise awareness of digital tools which promote health and wellbeing. There are many such tools available nowadays. Some can help us look after ourselves better, look after someone else or access the NHS more easily.

The Discovery grants are aimed at engaging seldom heard and minority communities in conversation around digital health and social care and surfacing barriers to adoption that they face and the support required to remove these barriers.

The Enabler grants will be building on newfound knowledge from previous citizen engagement and support projects to tackle access barriers, with the aim of supporting the digital inclusion and adoption of digital health and social care solutions amongst the targeted populations. We are also looking for applicants to embed our Human Rights Principles for Digital Health and Social Care within their applications for both funds to ensure the promotion of good practice and person centre outcomes.

The Inclusion and Participation Grants will provide a mixture of ‘Discovery’ small grants (up to £3,000 per organisation, 6-month projects) and ‘Enabler’ longer term grants (up to £15,000 per organisation, 18-month projects).

The Inclusion and Participation Grants will be open from the 24 August 2022 and will close at 5pm on Wednesday 14 September. For guidance on how to apply please check The Alliance where you will find
