Our Digital Participation Charter Fund (formerly Challenge Fund), supported by the Scottish Government and BT, invests in community digital participation projects across Scotland.

It provides small grants (typically up to £10,000) to help a range of organisations tackle poverty, social isolation and other forms of inequality in society through embedding basic digital skills development work in day-to-day activity with their service users.

The projects that we’re supporting will enable groups and organisations to improve the digital skills of their members, digitise content and build networks so that they can continue to thrive in the digital world.

All organisations which are funded become signatories of Scotland’s Digital Participation Charter. Here they can work closely with other signatories to achieve the overall aim of increasing the number of people in Scotland who have essential digital skills and can operate online safely and with confidence.
