100% Digital Leeds has announced a new fund to support third sector organisations (including charity, community and social enterprise organisations) in their digital response to COVID-19.

Applications for funding of up to £1,000 are welcomed. It is anticipated that these grants could cover:

  • The purchase of digital equipment for staff and volunteers, to better enable remote working/support of people
  • The purchase of digital equipment for people supported by organisations
  • The purchase of phone data/call credit for any of the groups above

Digital equipment is expected to mainly consist of items that would support remote working and/or enable people to stay connected and digitally included while socially isolating, for example laptops, headsets, tablets, smart phones etc.

The closing date is Friday 24th April, although please note the grant scheme may close early if the fund is fully allocated prior to this date.
