Leeds City Council will receive a share of £800,000 from the Local Digital Fund for innovative digital projects.

The Local Digital Fund will use innovation to solve common problems facing councils as they respond to the coronavirus pandemic. Funding has been allocated to 11 innovative council-led projects to help ensure they continue to modernise and improve the way they deliver public services.

Leeds City Council will receive £79,500 to develop a guide for all councils to ensure that people who may struggle with digital technology, especially those who are vulnerable of socially isolated, get the help they need. This will make it easier for them to use services and help with loneliness and local support. They will work with Croydon Council and Eastbourne Council.
