  • Digital Fund

    The first round of Digital Fund funding has now closed. Under Strands 1 and 2, we awarded £12.1m to 29 organisations and £500,000 for a support contract to work with them. There is £2.4m remaining of the £15m allocated to the Digital Fund, as announced in 2018. We are currently doing some discovery work to determine the needs of micro organisations across the UK, and whether these needs are primarily digital. We will use this work to inform how we support these groups in 2020. Alongside this, we are scoping how the remaining funds can have the most impact and we hope to launch a small number of small, strategic funds in 2020. For regular updates on the Digital Fund, please follow the team’s Medium blog.
