The Social Innovation competition is an annual competition run by Firstport, looking for ground breaking ideas that tackle Scotland’s most pressing social and environmental issues.
The Social Innovation Competition offers three £5000 awards (including the Young Social Innovator category open to applicants aged 16–30), combined with tailored support to refine and develop these ideas.
The theme of this year’s competition is ‘Individuals affected by disability’ and is looking to support new and emerging social innovators looking to develop their idea to benefit this target group. Successful entries will involve innovative ideas and solutions that support individuals directly affected by disability, as well as those indirectly affected, such as carers and family members.
The deadline for applications is the 16th of September at noon.
