In Place Leadership Innovation Fund available

The NHS Leadership Academy is proud to offer the ‘In Place Leadership Innovation Fund’ with the network of Local Leadership Academies (LLAs) to support local systems and organisations to develop innovative, inclusive and compassionate leadership and organisation/ system development to support achievement of the ambitions of the Five Year Forward View – in place.

We know that this will not be achieved through further top-down reorganisation but from leaders at all levels in the system being supported to innovate and test new approaches.  Whether it is at organisation, neighbourhood or system level, we are keen to seed and support innovations that enhance the lives of many; improving population health and patient care through the development of great, evidence-based leadership, system and organisational development.

This flexible grant offer can support organisations and systems working in new ways to develop leadership across their local health and care system to equip themselves to lead, to have the confidence when needed to relinquish power and unlock it in others, to have the knowledge to help shape new ways of working and to have behaviours that engage, empower and excite staff and activate communities.

Yorkshire and the Humber Leadership Academy, funders and co-ordinators of the Co-Creation Network invite applications for a grant between £10,000 – £50,000, by 27th October 2017. Please download this application pack and for further information contact Amy Makler at
