Join the Welsh Social Care Hack 2022 and secure up to £20,000 of innovation project funding!

Apply for up to £50,000 over two years!

The first-ever Welsh Social Care Hack has been launched, bringing the sector together to solve challenges faced by colleagues across social care, academia and industry by providing funding to develop the best innovative solutions. 

 The Welsh Social Care Hack will stimulate and support innovation to create Social Care systems, process, practices and methods fit for the future supported by technology. It offers a great opportunity for Social Care staff, universities, and industry to collaborate and network to develop early-stage ideas that could solve operational challenges proposed by real social care workers and practitioners in Wales. 

 The Social Care Hack will take place online, and challenges can be presented now before they are pitched to industry, academia and innovators at an event on June 8th, with the solutions being pitched on June 23rd and the winners chosen on the day. 

 Participants will gain access to innovation experts who will offer advice on how to take proposed solutions forward, as well as having the chance to secure up to £20,000 funding from the Welsh Government innovation project pot. 

 Do you or your team have a social care challenge that might benefit from an innovative solution? If so, find out more and submit your challenge by clicking the link below:

 Once your challenge is accepted and published (which can take up to five days), colleagues from social care, industry, and academia will have the opportunity to view your challenge on the platform and begin discussions with you. This event is all about collaboration, and you’re encouraged to make the most of that. 

 The deadline for submissions of the challenge is Sunday June 5th.
