A £500,000 fund has been launched to help third sector groups meet the costs associated with the new Carers Act
The Carers Act Transformation Support (CATS) Fund, funded by the Scottish Government, will give third sector organisations the opportunity to apply for small grants to improve their capacity to implement the Carers (Scotland) Act 2016. The funding will help organisations to transform their information/data management systems and processes to ensure they have the technical, data collection and IT capacity to support their work in relation to the implementation of the Act. This could be around: improving existing IT systems; developing new processes e.g. on line tracking systems or referral systems; software upgrades; purchasing equipment/hardware; purchasing licences; development of evaluation tools/systems; procurement of training/consultancy in relation to data collection and retrieval.
Next deadline: 3rd August 2018
Maximum award: £10,000
