Richmond and Wandsworth Councils have been awarded funding by the Local Government Association (LGA) to explore how digital technology can be used in Adult Social Care. In Richmond and Wandsworth, we are examining how digital technology can be used to help unpaid carers.
This funding forms part of the Social Care Digital Innovation Programme which is split into two sections. We are currently in the first of these, the Discovery Phase, during which we are conducting research on how digital technology can help carers and building a prototype to test with users. If you are an unpaid carer you can help us by filling in our questionnaire, providing feedback on how digital technology could help you and informing the design of our digital tool so that it assists with the challenges carers face in Wandsworth: https://haveyoursay.citizenspace.com/wandsworthasd/617ff74b
