The improvement fund has no additional funding to allocate for the foreseeable future due to changing service priorities. If the situation changes information will be shared on the ihub website.


The Improvement Fund is part of the grant making function of Healthcare Improvement Scotland’s (HIS) Improvement Hub (ihub). We look to fund projects at a local level that improve the quality of health and social care services in Scotland.

The fund was set up to support and encourage health and social care organisations to:

  • test and develop innovative practices that can contribute to the delivery of the National Health and Wellbeing Outcomes
  • contribute to the delivery of local integration priorities and strategies and the reducing inequalities agenda
  • increase the likelihood of change ideas being implemented locally and influencing thinking and practice nationally
  • identify and document learning and best practices that can be shared to scale and rolled out across Scotland, and
  • support the development of improvement capacity and capability across health and social care.
