Edinburgh Integration Joint Board funding
Third sector grant funding
Edinburgh Integration Joint Board Grant Programme 2019/ 22
A review of the former Health and Social Care and Edinburgh Community Health Partnership grant programmes has been carried out. The programmes have now been combined into a single grant programme and incorporate funding associated with the health improvement fund (HIF) and advice.
The priorities of the new programme align to the draft Strategic Plan 2019-22 and focus on tackling inequalities and prevention and early intervention.
The grant allocations for 2019-2022 were approved by the Edinburgh Integration Joint Board at its meeting on 14 December 2018. The allocations can be found in the papers from this meeting under item 5.2 “Recommendations from the Health and Social Care Grants review Programme 2019 – 2022”
In addition, the Board agreed the recommendations outlined below.
The Edinburgh IJB
- agree to incorporate the funding associated with the health improvement fund (HIF) and advice into the Edinburgh IJB grant programme;
- agree the recommended grant allocations;
- instruct the IJB Chief Officer to work with organisations previously funded, but who have been unsuccessful in their grant application, to ensure that service users facing a loss of service are offered appropriate alternative support;
- instruct the IJB Chief Officer to work with organisations as above to assist with identifying alternative funding sources or restructuring as appropriate;
- and that successful grant applicants be requested to prioritise working with service users affected by grant cessation;
- to use the final integrated impact assessment to inform the work above;
