Digital Inclusion Fund

19th September 2018

The Digital Inclusion Fund aims to support projects designing, researching or delivering digital inclusion programmes with a focus on older and/or disabled people. The projects must include something new, creative and innovative within their approach to tacking digital exclusion. The fund could also be used to test and learn from the new approaches. The projects supported may also have scope to scale up and deliver a wider impact.

What is it: The Digital Inclusion Fund aims to support initiatives designing, researching or delivering digital inclusion programmes with a focus on older and/or disabled people, in a new, creative and innovative way. It aims to improve essential digital skills and demonstrate how digital inclusion can improve the lives and well being, of older and/or disabled people. The initiatives supported may also have scope to scale up and deliver a wider impact. Funding could be used to test and learn from the new approaches to tackling digital exclusion.

Who can apply: Charities and not for profit organisations, including social enterprises, supporting or aiming to support older and/or disabled people with essential digital skills, although this does not need to be the main focus of your organisation. The funded projects ideally will have the potential for transformative social impact at scale and the ambition for growth and sustainability.

Where: The funding must be used to benefit residents living in England.
