The Carnegie UK Trust has announced that grants of up to £3,000 are available to organisations based in the UK or Ireland to help develop the digital skills of vulnerable young people aged 11-25.
Following the launch of the #NotWithoutMe ‘A digital world for all?’ report last year, The Trust is now looking to support the development of a further three projects through their first digital inclusion accelerator. The programme has been designed to stimulate the development of youth focused digital inclusion initiatives, whilst also building staff and organisational capacity to effectively deliver the projects.
As well as the funding successful organisations will also have the opportunity to be part of a six-month accelerator of support workshops, project and staff development opportunities. Successful organisation’s will have the opportunity to pitch for up to £40,000 further funding and a year’s support after the completion of the #NotWithoutMe Accelerator programme. The closing date for applications is 5pm on the 30th April 2018.
