Digital Participation Charter Fund
This Fund invests in community digital inclusion projects across Scotland and provides small grants of up to £10,000 to help a range of organisations tackle poverty, social isolation and other forms of inequality in society by enabling them to pass on essential digital skills to the people they work with and support in their day-to-day activities.
The support given through the Fund enables groups and organisations to improve the digital skills of their members, digitise content and build networks so that they can continue to thrive in the digital world.
All organisations which are funded become signatories of Scotland’s Digital Participation Charter. Here they can work closely with other signatories to achieve the overall aim of increasing the number of people in Scotland who have essential digital skills and can operate online safely and with confidence.
The eighth round of the Charter Fund is focused on supporting projects operating within the voluntary and public sectors and seeks to support the development of new digital inclusion activity in the context of the revised working practices necessitated by the coronavirus pandemic. It will focus on supporting organisations that can demonstrate a strong track record of working to tackle the various barriers experienced by individuals who are at most disadvantage in society.
Round 8 of this Fund is open to applications until 22 April 2021.
