Digital Skills 2021 Grants Programme Accepting Applications

10 May 2021/Categories: Grants_and_Funding

The Thomas Wall Trust marked its 100th birthday last year with a new grants programme that provided funding to not-for-profit organisations working to improve basic digital skills for people in need.

The Trust is continuing the programme again this year and is offering a limited number of grants of up to £5,000. (Last year, 15 grants were awarded.)

Priority will be given to:

  • Projects that link digital skills with employment opportunities.
  • Match funded projects.
  • Organisations that can provide compelling evidence of impact.
  • Organisations working with collaborative networks.

Not-for-profit organisations or charities based in the UK, established for at least three years and with an annual turnover of £500,000 or less may apply.

There is a two-stage application process.

The deadline for Expression of Interest (stage one) is 25 June 2021.

How To Apply

There is a two-stage application process.

  • Stage one is to complete an Expression of Interest form which requires some basic information. The next deadline is 25 June 2021.
  • Stage two is by invitation only and involves completing a more indepth application form.

The online Expression of Interest form is available on the Trust's website.

Contact the Thomas Wall Trust by using the Trust's online message form.
