Expressions of interest are now invited, offering third sector organisations to propose initiatives that can offer support within either of the two priority categories outlined below.

Priority 1: Preventative Community Capacity (wrap around support to prevent escalation of

need/specialist intervention)

· providing support for overall well-being

· helping with housing and preventing homelessness

Priority 2: Alternative Capacity to support discharge (a range of solutions to support

individuals waiting for community care to leave hospital/turnaround at the front door)

Priority Intent: Develop a range of solutions that can support individuals to leave hospital when waiting a package of care for a short term period.

Examples of third sector activities (but not limited to)
