Local Investment Programme 2017/18 final evaluation report (April 2019)

The Local Investment Programme (LIP) 2017/18 is part of a NHS Digital funded Social Care Programme, focusing on improving digital maturity in the adult social care provider sector and using technology for better joint working between adult social care and the health sector.

LIP is the first of three waves of funding for council-led innovation encouraging the use of digital technologies to improve the services, support service integration and create efficiencies within the challenging and increasingly financially pressed environment of health and social care. Through LIP, the LGA offered £50,000 of funding to 19 councils to develop these various technology-based initiatives.
