Creative Innovation and Growth Programme (CIAG)

Creative Innovation and Growth logoThe Creative Innovation and Growth (CIAG) Programme supports Adult Social Care businesses and organisations in Devon.

There are three elements within this package: the CIAG Grants Fund, CIAG Business Support and CIAG Leadership Development.

The overall aim of the CIAG Programme is to increase sufficiency in the Devon ASC sector by supporting the market to grow, develop and diversify. This includes personal, residential and unregulated care.

The grants fund has three aims:

  • To increase sufficiency in the ASC sector across Devon by supporting the market (including personal, residential and unregulated care) to grow; develop; and diversify, as appropriate.
  • To stimulate ‘edge of care’ outreach and prevention activities by promoting and supporting independence; connecting people to their communities; keeping people healthier for longer, and thereby reducing the need for statutory intervention.
  • To encourage innovation; take-up of new technology; new delivery models; and partnership developments.
