On March 18th the winners of the Bright Ideas Grant were announced. The 12 projects designed to improve services in health and social care are now underway. The Dignity in Care team have met with each project to ensure they meet the BIG criteria and provide advice and assistance to ensure each project reaches its maximum potential.
We are now looking to Dignity Champions to hold these projects to account. Together you chose the winners and now we want you to be able to influence how the projects are delivered by offering your advice and support. Please remember that 18,000 minds are better than 1, so if you have any thoughts on how the projects can be improved please add your comments on the project and get in touch. You can view the progress of each of the project on www.dh.gov.uk/big.
Remember these projects are not just about benefitting those they immediately influence but can be replicated in other areas, so if you are interested in putting something similar into practice in your area then get in contact with the project leads and find out how you can go about it.
