Infuse is a programme designed to deliver more innovative future public services across the Cardiff Capital Region (CCR).

Infuse offers Associates the chance to collaboratively tackle some of the biggest issues faced by the region. As part of your time on the programme, you will have an opportunity to learn about and apply new tools and approaches to help deliver successful public service innovations and test an idea you have designed to help tackle challenges on the themes of Accelerating Decarbonisation & Supportive Communities. Running from January to July 2023, you can expect to progress through three phases;

Explore; Focusing on laying the foundations for innovation.

Learn; Focusing on delivering new tools, approaches and methods for Innovation

Test; Focusing on safely testing out your innovations to find out if they deliver what you hoped

During this time, you will be supported by a team of innovation, data and procurement experts, coaches, academic researchers and evaluation experts who will work with you on your journey of exploration, learning and testing.

Infuse is supported by the European Social Fund through Welsh Government and is a collaboration between Cardiff University, Y Lab, Nesta, CCR and the ten local authorities that make up the region led by Monmouthshire County Council.

Our aim is to build innovation expertise in order to build and deliver better future public services.

Applications are welcomed from managers, leaders and future leaders who are passionate about making a difference. If you work in a charity or public service operating in the CCR, or any of the 10 local authorities that comprise the Cardiff Capital Region (Blaenau Gwent, Bridgend, Caerphilly, Cardiff, Merthyr Tydfil, Monmouthshire, Newport, Rhondda Cynon Taff, Torfaen, Vale of Glamorgan) you are eligible to apply.

If you would like to be part of the innovation of future public services, if you have the courage to make changes and lead changes in your organisation, if you want to shape the future for the better, please get in touch with us
