100% Digital Leeds: COVID-19 Fund Supporting Third Sector Health and Wellbeing Response to COVID-19

This fund is now closed

Please note: Our initial round of funding has been allocated. We are currently contacting organisations to inform them of the outcome of their application.

Introduction to the fund

100% Digital Leeds have a fund available to support third sector organisations in Leeds (including charity, community and social enterprise organisations) in their digital response to COVID-19.

Applications for funding of up to £1,000 are welcomed. Is is anticipated that these grants could cover:

  • The purchase of digital equipment for staff and volunteers, to better enable remote working/support of people
  • The purchase of digital equipment for people supported by organisations
  • The purchase of phone data/call credit for any of the groups above

For the purpose of this fund, digital equipment is expected to mainly consist of items that would support remote working and/or enable people to stay connected and digitally included while socially isolating – laptops, headsets, tablets, smart phones etc.

Grant Criteria 

Priority will be given to organisations working in Leeds with those groups identified as ‘Communities of Interest’- i.e. groups of people who share an identity, for example people with a learning disability, or those who share an experience, for example asylum seekers and refugees, and who may experience additional barriers to staying connected and digitally included.

To ensure that information and support continues to reach these groups during this time, It is intended that these grants will be used to support adults and that there will be a strong link to improving people’s health and wellbeing in terms of the resource applied for.
