August 17, 2016
Changing CARE
Changing CARE is The Change Foundation’s latest funding initiative for health care delivery/service providers.

Are you part of an Ontario health care delivery/service organization that wants to improve the health system for patients and families?

Is there an opportunity in your community that could have huge impacts for Ontario’s health quality?

Interested in working with local family caregivers and community partners to make it happen?

If you answered yes to these questions, then The Change Foundation wants to hear from you!

Expression of Interest materials are now available for Changing CARE—our new funding initiative for Ontario health care delivery/service organizations who want to partner with family caregivers to develop innovations that will improve the caregiver experience in Ontario’s health and community care systems.

Today also marks the launch of our latest report, Out of the Shadows and Into the Circle: From Listening and Learning to Action, a summary of key research and engagement work completed by The Change Foundation in 2015-16.

“After a year of dedicated work with Ontario’s caregivers, we’re ready to take action with Ontario health providers,” said Change Foundation President and CEO Cathy Fooks. “Changing CARE will create new and innovative partnerships between health care deliver organizations and caregivers to improve Ontario’s health and community care systems.”

Through Changing CARE, The Change Foundation will fund up to three projects from health care delivery or service organizations in Ontario. Projects will receive initial funding of up to $75,000 for the first four months, and $750,000 to $1,000,000 (amount subject to The Change Foundation’s Board Approval) in each of the next three subsequent years, through to fiscal year 2019-2020.

For those organizations interested in submitting an expression of interest, four informational webinars will be held on August 23, August 29, September 7, and September 14. All webinars will cover the same information in regards to Changing CARE themes, processes, and criteria.
