The ALLIANCE - Self Management Fund
This Scottish Government funded programme was set up to support development of co-produced, person centred, self-management activity across Scotland.

This round of the fund will to support projects that learn from the experience of people and:
Build on the resilience demonstrated by the third sector since 2020
Contribute to the recovery of health and social care services in the wake of the pandemic
Create opportunities to develop responsive services for the future.
Priorities for this round of the fund are projects which:
Provide support to people experiencing multiple forms of marginalisation, including people with sensory loss; ethnic minority communities; disabled children and young people; people with learning and intellectual disabilities; people experiencing economic deprivation; and unpaid carers
Focus on a hybrid way of working and supporting digital inclusion for those who have been excluded from the move to digital services.
