Funding for Not-for-Profit Organisations to Develop Digital Services – 12th February 2021 (UK)

The Paul Hamlyn Foundation and Comic Relief have announced that not-for-profit organisations in the UK can apply for grants of up to £70,000 through the Tech for Good digital development fund ‘Build’ programme.

The funding will be available to use technology to explore different approaches to delivering better services during the Covid-19 crisis. The funding is being made available through the Tech for Good digital development fund ‘Build’ programme.

Over £1 million will be available to individual not-for-profit organisations or those working in partnership to define, test and develop user-centred digital solutions to create more impact for the people they work with. Applications that aim to adapt or re-purpose existing technology are also eligible for funding.

The programme aims to fund a portfolio of digital projects at different stages of development and will support a range of digital interventions.

The Paul Hamlyn Foundation and Comic Relief are also interested in applications from partnerships between multiple not-for-profit organisations of different sizes and backgrounds that aim to work together to address or improve a service delivery problem in their areas of work.

Previously funded projects included the development of a trauma-informed mental health support tool for people who have experienced domestic abuse, a programme to digitise food vouchers for fruit and vegetable markets, and a game to address the safeguarding and protection needs of deaf children.

The closing date for applications is the 12th February 2021.
