THE THOMAS WALL TRUST DIGITAL SKILLS GRANTS

Grants up to £5,000 for UK registered charities and not-for-profit organisations for projects or core activities that support literacy, numeracy, digital and additional skills among disadvantaged groups to increase employment prospects.

2020 represents the Thomas Wall Trust’s centenary. To celebrate this the Trust is introducing a new grant scheme designed to increase the basic digital skills of disadvantaged people aged 18 and over.

The Digital Skills Fund’s priorities are:

o Projects that link digital skills with employment opportunities.
o Match funded projects.
o Organisations that can provide compelling evidence of impact, 
and
o Organisations working with collaborative networks.

UK registered charities and not-for-profit organisations may apply for a grant of £5,000.

The Trust is especially keen to support projects where match funding is already in place.

Eligible applicants must:

o Be a not-for-profit organisation or charity based in the UK.
o Have been established for at least 3 years, 
and
o Have an annual turnover that does not exceed £500,000.

Funding is not available for:

o Organisations with political, lobbying or proselytizing objectives.
o An organisation’s running costs.
o Capital costs (the purchase of land, buildings, construction, etc.).
o Organisations that operate outside of the UK, or
o Hospitals.

There is a two-stage application process, as follows

Stage 1 – completion of a short Expression of Interest form.
Stage 2 – following the Expression of Interest phase, the Trust will invite a number of successful applicants to complete a full application.

The first deadline to submit an Expression of Interest form is 31 March 2020. There is expected to be a second application round in the autumn of 2020.

Further information, together with the online Expression of Interest Form, can be found on the Trust’s website.
