Digital Participation Charter Fund opens for new applications at SCVO

A fund investing in community digital participation projects across Scotland has opened up again for applications.

The Digital Participation Charter Fund at the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO) exists to help organisations tackle poverty, social isolation and other forms of inequality in society.

This is done through embedding the development of essential digital skills in their day-to-day activity with their service users.

Supported by the Scottish Government and BT, it provides small grants (typically up to £10,000) and projects supported 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.

All organisations which are funded become signatories of Scotland’s Digital Participation Charter. There they can work closely with other signatories to achieve the overall aim of increasing the number of people in Scotland who have essential digital skills and can operate online safely and with confidence.

The deadline for applications is 12pm on Tuesday April 20.
