Future Digital Inclusion funding reopens for application
We’re pleased to announce that we have reopened applications for Future Digital Inclusion funding, for our community partners to deliver the project up until the end of March 2021.
Grants of between £1,575 and £12,500 are available and community organisations, training providers and members of the Online Centres Network not currently funded through the programme are eligible to apply.
The Future Digital Inclusion programme is funded by the Department for Education and delivered across the country by Good Things Foundation’s community partners, providing basic digital skills training to those who need it most.
Since 2014, the Online Centres Network has already supported more than 1 million people through Future Digital Inclusion, but with more than 11 million people still without the skills to take full advantage of the internet, there’s more hard work to be done.
Applications open on Thursday 19 August and close at 12 PM on Friday 4 September.
If you’re interested in applying, please read the funding guidance document in full.
