    Exciting news - Connecting Scotland is now welcoming applications for two new funds supporting organisations’ digital inclusion initiatives with devices and connectivity. A third opportunity will be available later in the year.

    The funds signal a new direction of the programme, which is moving from a pandemic-specific device gifting model to supporting organisations’ new or existing digital inclusion initiatives, creating and boosting capacity at a local level. 

    1. Device lending libraries 
    The device lending libraries programme is open to organisations that are already running device lending libraries. It can help them expand the range of devices and mobile connectivity that they have available, extend the number of devices available for loan or replace devices that are coming to the end of their lives. 

    2. Housing providers 
    The housing programme provides devices and/or connectivity to organisations providing social housing or transitional accommodation. Organisations can apply for devices and connectivity to be used in developing lending schemes and hubs, as well as grants for connectivity infrastructure projects benefitting their residents. 

    Both programmes are open for applications from Wednesday 29 August 2023. For more information and application details please visit:
