THE B.I.G COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED. CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR B.I.G WINNERS!
B.I.G is about finding bright ideas about care and helping people put their ideas into practice to prove they work.
We need to think differently and find new, better ways of doing things if our health and social care services are to meet the Dignity Challenge we face in the future. Everyday, people working in, using or visiting care services, have bright ideas, often about very simple things that could be changed or done differently, but they rarely get the chance to test them out.
B.I.G is a £50K fund aimed at helping unlock the potential of those hundreds of small ideas and giving people the helping hand they need to prove their idea works and share it widely.
The winners (listed below) will receive funding in the next few weeks and will be updating you monthly on their progress from May 2010. You will be able to comment on their progress and will continue to be able to offer help and advice throughout the next 6 months.
We will be showcasing their learning in the Autumn.
