The Care Experienced Young People Programme is excited to announce the upcoming launch of a brand new £4 million 'Home and Belonging' funding initiative.
This initiative will focus on the experiences of young people as they move beyond their formal care placement, with a focus on innovation and service design.
We will be holding a launch event on the 4th & 5th of September in Dundee. We want to invite people with experience of care and those who work with them, creative bods, designers, Champions Boards, techy people and people from the housing sector.
Attendees will benefit from a hands-on opportunity to learn about service design, from the perspective of those who actually use services, an innovative approach which is gaining momentum in Scotland.
The event will be an opportunity for those interested in applying to this fund, and those with a particular interest in this work, to meet a wide range of people, build relationships and start to develop proposal ideas. Although many attendees may be potential applicants for this funding, we’ve intentionally made the invite list wider than this to ensure we can bring fresh perspectives to this area of work, and build new collaborations.
