The Social Care Digital Innovation Accelerator 2020/21 (aka SCDIA) is run by CC2i on behalf of the Local Government Association and benefits from NHS Digital match-funding.

Three digital projects across Safeguarding, Discharge to Assess (D2A) and Virtual Support for people with learning disabilities are progressing in collaboration with 15 councils and public sector partners. These co-funded and co-designed projects will deliver real, scalable digital solutions built by independent technical partners. Over 100 councils are engaged with the progress of the SCDIA – which runs until March 2021 – after which the solutions will be available to others in local government to take up.

CC2i is a public sector co-funding platform which brings councils and other public sector partners together to co-design and co-fund digital solutions to shared challenges. To date over 70 public sector bodies have actively been involved in projects covering a range of key local authority services and the results of these have been scaled to over 200.

Two of the SCDIA projects will be showcased in seminar sessions at the virtual iNetwork annual conference this year and we will be available to support questions around all the SCDIA projects, as well as our other collaborations, so please do drop in!
