    The Digital Participation Charter Fund invests in community digital inclusion projects across Scotland. It provides grants to help a range of organisations tackle poverty, social isolation, and other forms of inequality in society through embedding digital skills development work in day-to-day activity with their service users.

    The fund will support projects which demonstrate an approach to embed digital upskilling in core services and meets one or both of the following aims: Reducing social isolation by:

    • Supporting people to connect to people that matter to them
    • Supporting people to connect with services and their local community or communities of interest

    Increasing economic prospects by:

    • Supporting working age people to move towards employment
    • Supporting people to make the most of the money they have by banking online or using digital tools to save on household bills
    • Supporting individuals and families with social security maximisation

    You can apply for costs related to the direct delivery of your digital inclusion work.

    The Charter Fund is open to groups and organisations from the voluntary and public sectors who are working to improve the digital skills of their communities or service users. You must be able to deliver support to help people achieve at least one of the Fund aims. Your organisation must be a signatory of the Digital Participation Charter.

    Apply online via the SCVO grant making portal. Full guidance and criteria can also be found here.

    The closing date for applications is 12.00 on Friday 03 November 2023.
