We are looking for Ontario-based health care delivery/service organizations that will work in partnership with both The Change Foundation and family caregivers. We are not targeting a specific health sector, caregiving situation, or organization for these projects.
Family caregiver co-design must be central to the work.
We will be funding quality improvement projects; although these will not be purely research projects they will include an evaluation component.
Areas of focus for work should be based on themes we have identified during our Caring Experience listening exercise as well as other areas identified locally.
What materials will be available on August 17th?
A report summarizing The Change Foundation’s research and engagement plans in 2015-16 and the direction and focus of our future work.
Expression of Interest application and criteria.
Funding application guidelines, frequently asked questions and references.
Overall decision-making and funding announcement timeline.
What is the application process?
We will hold informational webinars about our funding opportunities on August 23rd, August 29th, September 7th, September 14th – these sessions will allow TCF to share our vision, as well as give interested organizations an opportunity to ask questions. Click here to register.
We will design an “expression of interest” process that will be accessible and supportive for organizations of all sizes.
Depending on the volume of expressions of interest, we will invite a short list of applicants to develop a full proposal OR we will invite all.
The process will be transparent and equitable. The process may include site visits for short listed candidates.
We will use an independent third party as a fairness advisor and we may include external reviewers in the selection process.
Successful proposals will be announced in November 2016.
