The Queen’s Nursing Institute Scotland (QNIS) is delighted to announce the launch of this year’s Catalysts for Change 2 Programme. Applications for grants, of up to £5,000 are invited until Monday 6 June.
The focus of the work should be on generating or rehearsing ideas with a particular marginalised group that embraces the integration agenda, contributes to reducing inequalities and/ or empowers individuals, families and groups to improve their health and wellbeing. The projects must also be able to demonstrate added value in terms of the creative connections that are being generated through the work. The projects will be small scale, and may involve scoping a need or piloting a new way of working.
Projects must be led by a nurse who works in the community and involve a range of others from across agencies and sectors with the skills needed to make a difference. We would encourage teams to consider involving a team member from a university or practice development team to support the evaluation of the project. Projects will run for one year from July 2016-July 2017.
