Purple Futures created an Innovation Fund to help launch initiatives aimed at supporting rehabilitation.

The fund creates opportunities for organisations to work alongside our Community Rehabilitation Companies to develop projects that test new approaches to reducing re-offending. For a project to be successful it will have evaluation at its core, be clearly linked to our service delivery model and have the potential to be considered for future, longer term commissioning.

We are committed to commissioning services that offer both value for money and high quality delivery. We recognise to do this, we must co-design services with experts who are often existing providers. We will use principles of co-design and development in all of our commissioning work, and will do this in a fair and transparent way to ensure equality of opportunity to all. Engaging our service users in design and co-production is also at the heart of what we do. We want our supply chain to mirror these principles.

If you work in the voluntary, community or social enterprise sector and believe that you might have a project suitable for the Innovation Fund, please contact our partner organisation 3SC, which administers the fund.
