200- 2Last week  we had the pleasure of launching Round 2 of the £200,000 Dudley Innovation Fund at Dudley Council for Voluntary Services Building Blocks event at Insight for Carers

Through ‘Making It Real In Dudley’ we are changing the traditional view of adult social care and support and groups and organisations who would not have classed themselves as social care related in the past, may have some great ideas for care and support services – if so we want to hear from you…

Information about the Dudley Innovation fund can be found in the attached document or at www.makingitrealindudley.org/dif

There you will find a video on the Innovation Fund including gaps in current services identified by members of the public and some ideas for new support services.
In addition to hearing about your ideas…we also need your help

We do not want anyone with a great idea sitting there not knowing where to go for some financial help or support to get their idea off the ground.


Please share this post (or its contents) with your email contacts, any networks you are part of, on your twitter and FaceBook accounts or even just through good old fashioned word of mouth.


If you do tweet it out please use the hash tag #ideasthatchangelives and follow us @MIRdudley

Many thanks and hope to see some of you at our surgeries in December for you to come and talk to us about your ideas.
