 Rights Made Real in Care Homes

The Trust wants to invest in work that will make rights real for people with dementia living in care homes.

By investing in strong projects, a strong portfolio of evaluated projects will be available for others to learn from. We plan on funding approximately fifteen projects between 2018 and 2020.

The Trust, in partnership with Scottish Care, is seeking applications from care homes in Scotland. The care home must demonstrate that it can run a project (or similar) that will actively promote the rights of residents living with dementia.

You can apply for up to £20,000 to be spent over a period of up to 24 months. In the application the care home must show which of the new Health and Social Care Standards will be better realised through the project. You should also outline any human rights or equalities legislation/conventions that would be engaged by the project.

Applications must be made via the Trust’s online application portal.  You can access the online application form here. The closing date for applications is Friday 9th March 2018

We strongly recommend that you read our Guidance document before applying.  You can also download a sample application form and budget sheet.
