This fund focuses on supporting organisations currently working to tackle poverty, social isolation and other forms of inequality to embed basic digital skills development work into their day-to-day activity with service users. The Charter Fund is open to all sectors but is especially interested in supporting groups that work closely with their local community and run projects with a track record of working with individuals affected by poverty, social isolation and other forms of inequality. Eligible applicants must operate in Scotland, spend funding received entirely in Scotland and have already joined Scotland’s Digital Participation Charter at the time of their first payment.
The Fund is aimed at three target groups:
- Older People
- People with disabilities
- Job Seekers
Round 5 has now opened to applications for grants from £500 up to £10,000 with a deadline of 31 August 2017 .
