TAPPI: Phase 2 – from Principles to Implementation: Call for proposals for Evaluation partner

Open for applications for an Evaluation and Shared Learning Partner

Following the successful publication of the Technology for our Ageing Population: Panel for Innovation (TAPPI) Inquiry report in October 2021, we are now launching a second phase of the programme. TAPPI Phase 2 will ensure that the evidence gathered by the Inquiry in Phase 1 is built upon and used to create widely accepted Framework which embeds the recommended TAPPI Principles within a transformational change programme. This will be achieved by developing and testing supportive guidance and tools in live “locality testbeds”.  We hope that these can then be used as “exemplars” to catalyse nationwide adoption through engagement from the “ground up”.  In short, we intend to test what is possible and challenge what is perceived to be impossible, building upon the learning gathered during the pandemic and creating new housing service models using technology enabled care, with personalisation at its heart that, simply, delivers better outcomes for people, because it is co-designed by them.

To support delivery of the programme we have appointed two delivery organisations The Housing Learning and Improvement Network (LIN) and The TEC Services Association (TSA).

What will we fund?

We are seeking applications for an Evaluation and Shared Learning Partner to work with our delivery organisations and the locality testbeds to ensure the views of people who draw on services both current and future, their families and carers and housing organisations are reflected in the programme and the Framework.

The deadline for receipt of applications is 8 April 2022 at 5:00pm.

Co-Production and Engagement Partner – We are seeking a partner to work with key stakeholders to create a qualitative and quantitative benefits evaluation methodology and framework, capturing data in real-time and evaluating during the programme as well as reporting the overall evaluation at the end of the programme.

Please note that our call for a co-production and engagement partner has now closed. 

Locality testbeds –We have launched a call for applications from UK-based organisations (which might include Local Authorities, Housing Associations/Providers, Healthcare Trusts etc.) who are already interested in integrating technology with housing, health and social care and would be receptive to testing the TAPPI Principles, together with those that are new to the concept but recognise its importance. We are intending to select four “testbed” areas across the UK who will receive support from our delivery partners in the form of coaching, facilitation and practical tools, as well as a fund of £75k each to support them through a 12-15 month programme.
