    SCVO Digital Participation Charter Fund

    Supported by the Scottish Government and BT, Round 6 of the new Digital Participation Charter Fund is now open for applications.

    The Digital Participation Charter Fund (formerly Challenge Fund), supported by the Scottish Government and BT, invests in community digital participation projects across Scotland. It provides small grants to help a range of organisations tackle poverty, social isolation and other forms of inequality in society through embedding basic digital skills development work in day-to-day activity with their service users. Projects will enable 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. Building on an understanding of ‘what works’ in the development of basic digital skills, the sixth round of the Digital Participation Fund will be focused on two specific themes: supporting working age people to increase financial capability, employment and other economic outcomes; supporting older and disabled people to reduce social isolation and loneliness.

    Next deadline date for applications is 11 June 2018.
