Self Management Fund Open for Applications

Published: February 28, 2024


The Health and Social Care Alliance (the ALLIANCE) Scotland is now inviting applications to the 2024 round of the Self Management Fund, with £1,800,000 available from Scottish Government to support the continued development of co-produced, person-centred, self management activity across Scotland.

The 2024 round, “Self Management for Life”, is offering small grants of up to £15,000 for up to one year, or a large grant of up to £120,000 for up to 3 years for projects which put people and communities at the heart of prevention and self-care.

Projects should:

  • support people living with, or who might be at risk of developing, long-term conditions to be better able to self manage and/or reduce their risk factors
  • support people who experience barriers to accessing health and social care support and services (due to geographical, social, or economic factors) to feel better able to self manage through direct support or support to access services
  • support people who are waiting for a specialist health or social care intervention or rehabilitation, through enabling them to develop self management capabilities while awaiting treatment
  • support disabled young people, or young people living with long-term conditions, or unpaid carers, to understand the importance of self management and to develop skills which maximise their health and wellbeing

Sara Redmond, Chief Officer of Development at the ALLIANCE Scotland said:

“15 years ago, when Gaun Yersel was originally published and the Self Management Fund was established, we sought to support organisations taking more whole-person approach to support. Over the past 15 years we have seen the immense benefits of self management approaches for the people of Scotland. This new round of funding seeks to add to learning around how we can support people to manage their conditions or avoid developing further conditions altogether – helping people live better for longer.

“We are incredibly proud to have been able to support so much great work through the last three years of Recovery Resilience and Development funding rounds and we’re excited to see the creative, innovative approaches that groups will bring to this new round.”

The deadline for applications is 12:01am on Tuesday 5th March.
