Digital Support Fund – An online application process for local groups

 

Support Available & Funding Criteria

H&F Giving have launched our Digital Support Fund. We have a total of £20,000 available for charities to apply to for projects supporting Hammersmith & Fulham. Organisations with a track record of supporting residents in Hammersmith & Fulham are invited to apply for up to £4,000.

These funds are to be directed to initiatives such as:

  • providing devices and data
  • courses and training to bridge the digital divide

Target beneficiaries include but are not limited to children & young people, older adults, people experiencing homelessness, and refugees.

To note:

  • Projects must provide direct support to residents of Hammersmith & Fulham.
  • All organisations receiving grants will be required to keep records of all expenditure and to provide a report on activities and spend.
  • All organisations which receive funding must have an up-to-date safeguarding policy and procedures and equal opportunity policy.

Timeline

All funds must be spent or committed before 31 December 2024. The activity funded and final monitoring report should be completed and submitted by as soon as possible after your project is completed and no later than 31 January 2025. If your activity is agreed to continue beyond December 2025, you will need to agree a timeline with H&F Giving.
