The Royal Bank of Scotland Skills and Opportunities Fund is offering grants of up to £35,000 to charities, not-for-profit organisations and state funded schools and colleges, to support projects working with disadvantaged communities focused on one or more of the following themes: employability, education or enterprise.
Here in SCVO’s Digital team we know there are lots of organisations across Scotland working hard to help people gain the digital skills they need to thrive in today’s world. Perhaps you are part of a charity helping disadvantaged young people use technology to support their education? Or maybe you are working with BME communities teaching digital skills aimed at increasing employability?
Whether you are looking to expand an existing project or to get a great idea off the ground then this could be the opportunity to do so. Further information including full eligibility criteria is available here.
If your organisation is looking for funding to support people to get online then keep an eye out for updates on the Digital Participation Challenge Fund round 4, due to be launched at the end of September.
