The Digital Inclusion Small Grants Programme is open to members of the Newham Digital Inclusion Alliance who are not-for-profit organisations including voluntary, community and faith organisations working in Newham, that support local projects and activities addressing the digital inclusion needs in our community.

The Newham Digital Inclusion Alliance Small Grants Programme will support digital inclusion projects in Newham. The projects should focus on developing the digital skills of Newham Residents.
This includes:

  • Offering training programs, workshops, or online resources to improve digital skills and literacy among individuals who may be inexperienced or intimidated by technology.
  • Focusing on basic digital skills such as using email, browsing the internet, using social media, online safety, and digital communication.
  • Providing advanced training in areas like coding, digital marketing, graphic design, or data analysis to empower individuals to pursue digital careers and opportunities.

The total value of this year’s fund is set at £80,000 and organisations can apply for up to £5,000 per project. We aim to support at least 16 projects across the borough. The grant programme will be managed by the Council’s Libraries and Community Assets team.

We encourage you to think ‘outside the box’ on how you can achieve your project outcomes by considering other sources of funding, in-kind contributions and partnership working. This will help us to fund more projects and bring better value and impact to Newham.

This grant programme is now live. Running from Wednesday 17 July 2024 closing on Thursday 29 August 2024 at 11pm.
