Welcome to Innovate

Third Sector, Dumfries and Galloway works to promote, support and develop a strong Third Sector and specifically to develop enterprising Third Sector solutions to the many challenging issues that we face in the field of Adult Health and Social Care.

This website is aimed at those who are working in Adult Health and Social Care in the public sector. The policy agenda of integrating Health and Social Care services is to improve the quality and consistency of services for patients, carers, service users and their families. Health and Social Care workers in the public sector will be at the forefront of delivering the changes required to achieve this ambition.

social enterprise - power of partnershipsPutting You First has funded Third Sector, Dumfries and Galloway to deliver a project designed to support staff within Health and Social Care to develop a greater knowledge and understanding of social enterprise and enterprising third sector organisations and the role they could play in the future design and delivery of services to the people and communities of Dumfries and Galloway. The project aims to build on the success of the Putting You First Programme in bringing partners together and encouraging a culture that is supportive of new ways of working.

The first step in the project is to ask Health and Social Care workers from across Dumfries and Galloway to sign up and take part. When you sign up to the project you will receive regular updates on the project and case studies of Health and Social Care Social Enterprises from across the United Kingdom. You will also be registered to take part in two one day events which will take place at Easterbrook Hall on the 20th May and 16th September.
