Innovation Challenge Final Report

Innovation Challenge Programme Evaluation Report Leicestershire County Council in partnership with Community Catalysts December 2011 to December 2012

Introduction- Sandy McMillan, Assistant Director Strategy and Commissioning, Leicestershire County Council

Our vision in creating the Innovation Programme for Leicestershire was to build on the Social Care transformation agenda and create new ways of enabling users of housing related support services to have more influence and control over the support services they use.  While the bursary scheme formed a core element of the Programme, we were keen that mutual support and learning would also feature heavily in order to achieve a lasting impact. We have been delighted to work with Community Catalysts and our housing related support providers to achieve our aspirations for this Programme and the innovation, learning and support tools highlighted in this report are testament to what can be achieved with a relatively small amount of funding and a lot of enthusiasm. To build on the success of Phase 1 of the Innovation Programme, we have now launched a Phase 2 bursary scheme and will be working with 13 organisations over the next 12 months to explore new ways of delivering early intervention and prevention approaches that have potential to deliver both efficiencies for health and social care services and better outcomes for our customers.
