Perthshire North MSP, Mr John Swinney, has today encouraged groups within his constituency to apply to the new Digital Fund, administered by the Big Lottery Fund.
The Digital Fund is a new UK-wide £15 million funding programme to support charities and community organisations. It will be launched on October 22nd, and aims to help charities and voluntary sector groups use digital tools and approaches to support people.
Commenting, Mr Swinney said:
“I would encourage any eligible groups within my constituency to apply for Digital Fund grants.
“Our increasingly digital world presents tremendous opportunities for charities and community groups, but can also pose significant challenges. With Big Lottery funding, organisations will be able to receive financial support to build upon the already stellar work they do across Perthshire.”
Applications for the fund open on 22nd October with a closing date of 3rd December 2018. Further details can be found at https://www.biglotteryfund.org.uk/funding/programmes/digital-fund
