The Care Innovation Hub brings together entrepreneurs and innovators, university students and care sector colleagues to create solutions to key challenges facing the care sector.
It kicks off with the Innovation Weekend in June and this is what you can expect!
- Creative weekend of idea generation and prototype trialling
- Mentoring from industry experts
- 5 finalists receive funding and further mentoring to prepare for the final
- Winning team receives £1,000 in prize money and further mentoring to develop a viable business.
The National Care Forum (NCF) hosts the annual Challenge on behalf of the whole sector, supported by Think Local Act Personal (TLAP) and our partners.
2023 was another stellar year, from the Challenge Weekend in July 2023 to the Final at The Care Show in October 2023 and now we’re looking forward to welcoming this year’s applicants!
