Jill (Darling) from RBK passed this info to me, so I am sharing it with you...

The Cabinet Office has launched a £1m Carers Social Action Support Fund to help grow social action projects that support unpaid family carers.  Successful organisations will need:

  • a strong track record of helping carers
  • enthusiasm for measuring the impact of their services
  • the capacity to quickly build on existing services

Applications are sought from the voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) sector, public bodies and businesses. These organisations should have a social mission or an objective to increase social action, or they should be involved in providing public services.  Completed applications  to be submitted by midday on 22 October 2014 via satcorrespondence@cabinet-office.gsi.gov.uk
