VCSE Digital Skills and Inclusion grants ‘Meet the Funder’ Q&A sessions – 6th & 7th August 2020
Trafford Council has now launched its Digital Skills and Inclusion grants, VCSE organisations (Voluntary, Community & Social Enterprise) can apply for up to £5,000 for projects and initiatives that provide training and support, as well as the purchase of new Digital equipment, to enable residents and staff to improve digital skills and enable people of all ages to be digitally included.
The grants are available to any voluntary, community and social enterprise group in the borough.
The grants are there to improve the digital skills and digital inclusion of residents of all ages for work and at home purposes. By improving resident's digital accessibility and digital skills, residents can stay connected with friends & family, local services, and gain the confidence to access information and advice online, which may help to reduce social isolation and enable people to be more connected with services available in their community.
We are running two short Q&A sessions on Thursday 6th August at 3pm and Friday 7th August at 1:30pm for VCSE groups and organisations wanting to ask questions about applying for funding and potential digital projects.
The first round is currently open for applications until 16th August 2020.
