In its Inception Framework, Birmingham and Solihull Integrated Care System sets out a series of radical ambitions to transform how health and social care services are run, and at the same time to give real focus to improving outcomes and tackling inequalities.
To help to achieve this, they have created the Fairer Futures Fund to support community, clinical and professionally-led innovation. The Fairer Futures Fund for Solihull has been delegated to the local Place Committee to administer in line with the needs of local communities.
The fund is designed to seed-corn and support activities that will contribute to improved integrated working which in turn will improve outcomes and help to tackle inequality. Initially, the majority of these may be on a very localised or team-based level, with a view to some initiatives creating new ways of working that can be scaled up and adopted across Birmingham and Solihull.
