For this round, the ICF and Changing for the Better grant schemes are piloting a combined application process.

The focus of the funding streams are to provide a more effective use of funds by connecting both regional and local health and wellbeing priorities, increase the consistency and quality of services provided by the third sector and to deliver positive wellbeing outcomes for people in communities.

Changing for the Better (C4B)
The Changing for the Better Grant Scheme is a fund sponsored by ABMU Health Board. It targets groups which provide, or intend to provide, local services which improve the health and wellbeing of the local population in Swansea, Neath Port Talbot and Bridgend.

Specifically the scheme will invest in health and wellbeing activities which aim to encourage independence and self-care, and shift the balance from secondary care services.

C4B Small Grant Programme:
Maximum allocation: £3,000 (individual organisation applications) or £6,000 (collaborative / regional applications).
Eligible costs: Capital and/or revenue on a one off, non-recurring basis.
Delivery dates: September 2017 - 31 March 2018.

C4B Large Grant Programme:
Maximum allocation: £10,000 (individual organisation applications) or £20,000 (collaborative / regional applications) per year for up to 18 months.
Eligible costs: capital and revenue
Delivery dates: October 2017 - 31 March 2019

Integrated Care Fund (ICF) (Small Grants Programme)
The Fund supports initiatives which prevent unnecessary hospital admission, inappropriate admission to residential care, and delayed discharges from hospital. From 1 April 2017 it has been rebranded as the Integrated (rather than Intermediate) Care Fund (ICF) to better reflect an expanded scope.

The ICF is a mechanism to support delivery of the requirements of the Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act 2014 (the Act). The Act provides for regional partnership boards, locally Western Bay, which bring together health, social services, the third sector and other partners to take forward the effective delivery of integrated services in Wales. Their purpose is to improve the outcomes and well-being of people with care and support needs, and their carers.

Maximum allocation: £10,000 (individual organisation applications) or £15,000 (collaborative / regional applications).
Eligible costs: revenue only.
Delivery dates: September 2017 - 31 March 2018.
