Covid Innovation Fund: Digital Project

LOTI Covid Innovation Fund digital project to develop a preventative approach for supporting vulnerable residents.

Launched in December 2020, the LOTI Covid Innovation Fund allocates £150K from LOTI’s budget to help boroughs work together to address Covid-related challenges. Our aim was to fund two projects, with half the money going towards an idea that involves making smarter use of data, and the other for a digitally-enabled initiative. For more details on the Fund, please read this blog.

This project was put forward by Newham and Hackney. The project aims to design and put in place more preventative measures to help ensure residents whose vulnerabilities have been exacerbated by the pandemic avoid reaching crisis point. We think the lessons will support some of the new ways of working boroughs have stated they want to pursue as a result of dealing with the pandemic.
