Funding: Tech for Good UK 2016-17

Comic Relief, together with the Paul Hamlyn Foundation have launched another UK Tech for Good funding programme. This will fund 10 digital projects each with up to £46,500, plus £3,500 to enable access to expert support. This programme aims to provide the opportunity for not-for-profit organisations who already have some technological capacity to take their digital innovation projects forward within four months and address any of Comic Relief’s four programme areas:

  • Empowering Women and Girls
  • Investing in Children and Young People
  • Building Stronger Communities
  • Improving Health and Wellbeing.

Projects will last up to four months and a wide range of digital interventions will be considered. The aim is to fund projects that:

  • Are focused on specific user needs in their design, delivery and development
  • Make best use of web, mobile or internet based technologies
  • Can scale effectively and offer economies of scale
  • Disrupt and challenge existing ways of delivering services.

Applications will be submitted by video and the closing date for applications is the 1st November 2016.
