Dumfries & Galloway Health & Social Care

DGHSCP Intrapreneurship Programme

DGHSCP Intrapreneurship Programme

Dumfries and Galloway Health and Social Care Partnership (DGHSCP) are delighted to launch an exciting new programme that we believe can make a real difference for local people and how we provide care and support.

Applications are now open for the Dumfries and Galloway Health and Social Care Partnership Intrapreneurship Programme, delivered in partnership with The Lens.

‘Enabling people to live well at home for longer’ is an ambition we all share and we are delighted to announce that DGHSCP is partnering with The Lens on a second Intrapreneurship Programme with the hopes to continue transformation across all areas of our health and social care system.

To learn more about the vision of the Programme, hear from David Rowland, Director of Strategic Planning & Transformation.

An investment fund of £50k was committed for the pilot Programme earlier in the year where five teams received investment to deliver their ideas after pitching at an Investment Day. To find out more about the day, watch the video here.

Launching today, the Programme will build intrapreneurial capability and capacity across DGHSCP and is a fantastic opportunity for professional and skills development. Those who participate will: develop business development and innovation skills, confidence, and leadership capabilities.

We know that it is often the people closest to the problem who have the best ideas. If you’ve got an idea that will enable people to live well at home for longer, DGHSCP would like to hear from you! Apply for the programme to have a chance at securing investment for your idea.

How to apply and who can get involved

Applications are now open and will close on the 21st November 2023.

You can find information on the application process, the application form and more details about the Programme here.

It is often the people closest to the problem have the best ideas. The Programme is open to all people who deliver health and social care and support, including unpaid Carers, third sector and other sector organisations.

Moving forward

I’m sure you all share our excitement as we take this significant step towards making our vision a reality.

This is a unique, exciting opportunity for you to make a real difference to the lives of the people of Dumfries and Galloway, and we look forward to hearing your ideas over the coming weeks.
