Commissioning Differently - National Good Practice Session 2 

Wednesday 30 November 2022, 14:00 – 16:00

This is the second session in a series of events looking to support the development of New Models of Care and commissioning differently.

Grants: often much maligned and misunderstood. How do we return to embracing the positive opportunities that grant funding offers? Indeed, should grants be the default commissioning method of choice in health and social care? The session will include examples of innovative use of grants to enable collaboration amongst provider organisations and within communities. Grant funding has a strong alignment with the ideas set out in the Independent Review of Adult Social Care. We will explore what it would take to re-establish the place of grant making as part of good commissioning practice.

The Collaborative Commissioning Team are looking forward to welcoming:

  • Dr Linda Irvine-Fitzpatrick leading work as part of The Pact, Community Remobilisation & Thrive, which is changing commissioning practice in Edinburgh.
  • Simon Lynch talking about developing, implementing and improving a grant funding programme which is person centred, encourages collaboration, has co-produced outcomes, and uses continuous feedback to improve.
