Community First Yorkshire is working alongside North Yorkshire Council and York and North Yorkshire Combined Authority to deliver support for digital inclusion projects across North Yorkshire.

The aim of this programme is to increase digital support across the county, through new digital inclusion projects and offers. The programme looks to support VCSE organisations develop sustainable digital hubs across the county and upskill volunteers and employees to become digital champions.

Support for organisations

It will enable organisations to access capital funding to purchase equipment, support with infrastructure, revenue funding for start-up costs and volunteer co-ordination along with access to training to upskill volunteers, or existing staff, to be digital champions.  

The digital champions will then support people to access digital services alongside other relevant information, advice, and services with the overall aim of improving wellbeing and reducing inequalities.

Who can apply

Existing digital inclusion projects may apply but will need to demonstrate (as with new projects) the increase in capacity in terms of numbers of digital champions and training completed.

All successful grant applicants will have free access to a range of digital inclusion and related courses and accredited being delivered throughout 2024/2025.

Applications for grants are open until 31 May 2024.
