Empowering Change: Much needed investment for innovation in Self Management
The Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland (the ALLIANCE) recently announced funding for 34 new Self Management projects, granted to organisations across Scotland. Cosgrove Care is delighted to have been named as one of the successful organisations.
The Fund supports self-management for people living with long term conditions, disabled people and unpaid carers across Scotland, enabling people to be in the driving seat of their health, care and wellbeing.
Sara Redmond, Chief Officer of Development at the ALLIANCE said:
“Everyone has the right to live well with dignity and respect yet for too many people and communities the cost of living crisis comes on top of worsening health inequalities arising from more than a decade of austerity and exacerbated by the pandemic. Self management approaches can support people to live better, with greater options for support, and reduce some of the burden of these inequalities.
The ALLIANCE is pleased to be able to support a further round of projects working with diverse communities across Scotland, developing a wide range of approaches designed and delivered in partnership with the people they aim to support, providing the third sector vital resources to respond to this challenging climate.”
Cosgrove Care has received funding for a one year project designed to help improve the wellbeing of people with learning disabilities and their carers.
This investment from the Self Management Fund, administered by the ALLIANCE, is made possible by the continued support and investment from the Scottish Government of £2 million annually.
