Adult social care is under enormous pressure. Budget constraints are severe and demand is growing. Both social care professionals and the people they serve report that the quality of outcomes is often not where they would like them to be.
In response, on 1 November 2022, LOTI will host an innovation day at London City Hall for adult social care professionals and their third and private sector partners to explore the possibility of developing new service models. Participants will learn and be supported to think about radical new approaches to meeting social care needs. The focus will be on delivering better outcomes in more sustainable ways over the long term, using all the tools, approaches and methods that are available in the internet era. The event will be followed by a £200k innovation fund to incentivise, select and pilot the most promising ideas for new service models.
This work builds on LOTI’s prior research and projects that have examined how boroughs can make better use of assistive technology. To increase our understanding of this field, we have also published the following research:
- Social care technology innovators: This report produced by CC2i, looks at the innovative supplier market, focusing on SMEs and start-ups that offer interesting and relevant tools to social care services.
- New service models: This report produced by PUBLIC, highlights interesting case studies where technology is enabling radical new service models in the UK and abroad to deliver better quality care.
