Building Collaboration Fund

Please note that applications for the Building Collaboration Fund are now closed.

CCPS is working in partnership with Scottish Government to support the development of collaborations in the social care sector through the Building Collaboration Fund.

The £100,000 fund recognises the huge promise of organisations working together to improve their offer to the people they collectively support.

Funding of between £5000 and £25,000 was awarded to six collaborations.  They are working together to participate in a structured peer learning programme that provides additional support for overcoming some of the barriers to successful collaboration. The knowledge and learning gained from these sessions will help inform future collaborations in the social care sector.

  • LifeCare (Vintage Vibes Partnership) who lead a collaboration looking at tackling isolation and loneliness in Edinburgh’s older people.
  • Waverley Care who are working collaboratively to respond to a HIV outbreak among people who inject drugs in Glasgow city centre.
  • Quarriers who is the lead partner in a collaboration aiming to provide more personalised support for care experienced young people at a critical period of transition.
  • Fair Deal who are working in partnership to bring together social care providers in Castlemilk to support people to live safely in their own homes.
  • Penumbra who are working with other providers to develop an outcomes based contracting mechanism to address demand and unsustainability in mental health services.
  • Turning Point Scotland as part of the Voluntary Sector Recruitment Working Group’s work with a number of providers to gather evidence on social care recruitment to identify sustainable ways of addressing recruitment difficulties.
