Welcome to the Care Innovation Hub
Creating exploration and innovation in social care.

The Care Innovation Hub launched the Care Innovation Challenge in 2018, an annual incubator programme.

Bringing together entrepreneurs and innovators – university students and care sector colleagues – to create solutions to key challenges facing the care sector.

After pausing operations due to COVID-19, the National Care Forum (NCF) took over the running of the Hub and the annual Challenge on behalf of the whole sector, supported by Think Local Act Personal (TLAP).

"NCF is in a great position to take forward the Care Innovation Hub programme to stimulate aspiring innovators to develop solutions for the benefit of providers and those receiving care and support. NCF is dedicated to developing innovation in the social care and support sector and this is a natural home to drive the Care Innovation Hub into the future."

Vic Rayner OBE, CEO, National Care Forum
