A second phase of funding has been released to help adult social care providers safely achieve the benefits of digital technology.
Digital Social Care is working with the Local Government Association and NHSX to financially support up to 100 individual care providers to help them take the critical steps they need to assess and reduce the risks of using digital technology.
Whatever stage they are at, from driving out the use of faxes or improving back up arrangements to improving their team’s confidence and safe use of passwords or smart phone technology, providers can apply for up to £2,000 in financial support.
Providers must apply for funding by October 11 and their request will be assessed against the funding guidelines and criteria.
If the application is accepted, the grant will be awarded straight away. Click here for more details.
