Integrated Care Fund (ICF) 2018/19 Proposal Bids
The Intermediate Care Fund was originally established in 2014 to support initiatives which prevent unnecessary hospital admission, inappropriate admission to residential care, and delayed discharges from hospital. From 1 April 2017 it has been rebranded as the Integrated Care Fund (ICF) to better reflect an expanded scope.
The Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act 2014 (‘the Act’) provides for West wales Regional partnership board which bring together health, social services, the third sector and other partners to take forward the effective delivery of integrated services in this region. The aim is to improve the outcomes and well-being of people with care and support needs, and their carers. The ICF is a mechanism to support delivery of the requirements of the Act.
