This Scottish Government-funded programme was set up to support development of co-produced, person-centred, self-management activity across Scotland.
Learning from people’s lived experience of living with long term conditions, and their unpaid carers, is at the heart of what the Fund is designed to achieve.
The key aim of this round of funding is to support the strengthening of the local health and social care integration agenda. It will support new ideas as well as the development of existing ideas. The idea should come from the people it is designed to benefit and people living with long-term conditions- and their unpaid carers- will be enabled to take a leadership role in the design, delivery and evaluation. The capacity of people living with long-term conditions, and their unpaid carers, to effectively self-manage will be enhanced with the principles of self-management contained in Gaun Yersel'- the Self-Management Strategy for Scotland, at the heart of the project.
