  • Connecting Scotland - Support for Housing Providers

    Created: 19/10/2023
    News/Events Category: Funding and Finance

    Connecting Scotland is a collaboration between Scottish Government and SCVO to increase digital inclusion. The objective of this project is to provide devices and/or connectivity to organisations across Scotland providing social housing or transitional accommodation.

    There are three opportunities within this fund for devices and/or connectivity to support people who are experiencing digital exclusion:

    1. To form a new lending library
    2. To be part of a community space where devices and connectivity are available
    3. A larger improvement project for connectivity infrastructure in communal areas

    They will support projects that can be accessed by people who fall into at least one of the following categories: 

    • Those over 65  
    • People living in low income households
    • People living with a long-term illness or disability  
    • People currently unemployed 
    • Women and children at risk of violence 
    • Families
    • People who are homeless

    Who can apply

    This project is for social housing providers and voluntary and public sector organisations providing short- or longer-term transitional housing services. They are looking to fund organisations that are less experienced in digital inclusion work but who have the resource and supporting infrastructure in place to manage new projects.
