Calls for proposal: Enabling Use of Information for Wellbeing through Remote Technology

Developing an Emotionally Intelligent Approach to COVID Resilience, Recovery and Renewal by Library-Third Sector partnerships.

This call for proposals is funded by the Scottish Government Health Literacy and Self-Management team. It is issued by the Digital Health & Care Innovation Centre (DHI) in collaboration with the Scottish Library and Information Council and the ALLIANCE.

The project aims to co-design and test a training framework for library and third sector staff using remote technology to facilitate health literacy, creative reading and storytelling for people at risk of social isolation due to the impact of COVID. The aim is to use remote technology to deliver person-centred support in using information for wellbeing and to provide the emotionally intelligent human connection which is often essential for personal change.

The outputs from this project will help to lay foundations for a new digital wellbeing service model for libraries and third sector partners. This service model will see partners collaborating to use remote digital technology in an innovative way which combines information provision with person-centred, therapeutic support to facilitate personal resilience, recovery and renewal through the COVID pandemic and beyond.

Deadline for submissions: Tuesday 05 January 2021 by 1200
