Applicants are invited to submit proposals to develop new, innovative approaches to health and care, actively share excellent practice or improve integrated care and efficiency.
The Innovation, Excellence and Strategic Development Fund (IESD) provides funding to support proposals in the health and care field, supporting projects with the potential for national impact in line with DH objectives of better health and wellbeing and better care for all.
Organisations can apply individually, or in partnership with others. Proposals should be submitted using the Award Information Management System (AIMS), the Department’s online grant management system.
In the 2012-13 round, 74 projects benefited from funding under the scheme each receiving a share of £6.9 million. These projects, ranging from cancer services to mental health projects for young adults, are now benefiting people across the country.
