Big Lottery announce new Digital Fund

The Digital Fund is a new UK wide £15 million funding programme to support charities and community organisations. It is about helping the charity and voluntary sector to use digital tools and approaches to support people and communities to thrive.

Applications initially open on 22nd October 2018 and close on 3rd December 2018. There will be further opportunities to apply in 2019.

The Digital Fund is currently offering two strands of funding. To find the right kind of support for your organisation, choose one of the following options:

Digital Fund Strand 1 offers grants of up to £500,000 and a tailored support package. The aim is to help established charities use digital to take a major leap forward. We expect grants to last from 1 to 4 years.

Digital Fund Strand 2 offers grants of up to £500,000 for newer organisations that have already launched promising services that use digital to achieve scale or impact. We expect grants to last from 1 to 4 years.
