Fund description:

The Creative Innovation & 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; & CIAG Leadership Development.

The CIAG Grants Fund is for outreach and ‘edge of care’ activities to promote and support independence; connect people to their communities; keep people healthier for longer; and reduce the need for statutory intervention. The funding also aims to encourage innovation; take-up of new technology; new delivery models; and partnership developments

Revenue grants can be up to £40,000; capital or mixed capital/revenue grants can be up to £80,000. Applicants need to provide at least 50% (40% for not-for-profit organisations) of total project costs in match funding.
