New digital inclusion funding round open now
We’re pleased to announce that Future Digital Inclusion funding is now open for 2019-20 and we’re looking for more members of the Online Centres Network to join the programme.
More than £300,000 of funding is available for Online Centres and organisations not currently funded through the programme.
The Future Digital Inclusion programme is funded by the Department for Education and delivered by the Online Centres Network in communities across the country.
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 more hard word to be done.
Applications are open from today – Friday 22 February - for two weeks, until 5pm on Friday 8 March.
If you’d like more information, we’re holding a free webinar on Wednesday 27 February. All About Future Digital Inclusion will answer your questions on the background to the programme, contract sizes, eligibility criteria, the application process.
Alternatively, you can view all the guidance for the Funding Digital Inclusion programme here.
