Funding for digital projects

The government has launched a £1m fund to improve digital leadership skills in the charity sector. The funding will be used to expand, improve or rework existing training programmes to help charities bolster their digital skills and understanding of how technology can improve their organisation.

This follows an initiative in August to help improve the digital skills of under-represented groups in the technology sector, including women and disabled people.

The deadline for Digital Leadership Fund applications is 7 December 2018.
