The Connecting Scotland programme aims to close the digital divide, with a target of bringing 60,000 households online by the end of 2021.
The programme is now accepting applications from organisations working to remove barriers related to digital exclusion for unemployed young people and adults (aged 16+).
Organisations can apply for support on behalf of the people they work with. This includes:
- Digital devices – iPads and/or Chromebooks
- Internet connectivity – a mobile WiFi hotspot with 24 months unlimited data
- Training and support – for staff and volunteers to become ‘digital champions’ to support people to use the internet confidently and safely
The next application round is due to open on 30 August. Please visit Connecting Scotland for full details and guidance.
