Funding to Help Charities Deliver Better Services Through Technology (UK)

The Paul Hamlyn Foundation and Comic Relief have announced a new digital funding strand to their joint Tech for Good programme. The aim is to help charities and not-for-profit organisations deliver better services for their communities through technology. The £230,000 Explore programme will provide grant funding of £5,000 for individual organisations or £7,500 for collaborative projects. A 12-week support programme will also be provided to explore how digital technology could transform the ways they work. Support will include access to an online curriculum, one-to-one support calls, and virtual community meet-ups. Applications should address one of Comic Relief’s core themes: Children Survive & Thrive; Fighting for Gender Justice; A Safe Place to Be; Global Mental Health Matters. The deadline for applications is 12pm on the 22nd June 2020. Click here
