The Integrated Care and Support Pioneer programme was initiated nationally to improve the quality and effectiveness of care for those who need support from different parts of the NHS.

It is distinctive compared with previous integrated care initiatives in adopting a definition of integrated care that is user-centred, and endorsed by national agencies forming the Integrated Care and Support Collaborative.

Over a period of at least five years, the Pioneers are being given access to in-kind expertise and support from the national partners and international experts. Only minimal additional funding was provided initially (£20,000), with an additional £90,000 made available to each first wave Pioneer in June 2014.
