The Community Learning and Development Device Fund is provided by the Scottish Government and managed by SCVO.
The objective of the fund is to provide capital funding to Community based organisations across Scotland to purchase digital devices that can be used by learners to support their learning.
Organisations must retain ownership of the devices for their lifetime and be responsible for set-up, ongoing management and security of devices. This fund is for community-based organisations.
Organisations must be based in Scotland and delivering community learning and development services in Scotland. Your organisation must have been delivering services for at least 1 year.
Types of organisations that can apply include:
Charities registered with OSCR • Voluntary Organisations
Community Interest Companies (CICs) – if there is an asset lock in place
Charitable Trusts (if set up by a Local Authority the trust must be fully independent from it)
Community Enterprise Trusts
Each organisation can apply for a grant of up to £15,000 to be used solely for the purchase of digital devices. Digital devices must be used by learners to support them in their learning. Ownership of devices must be retained by the applying organisation for their lifetime.
