The digital fund will operate for two years and will award grants of up to £500,000.

The first funding phase will open to applications from 22 October to 3 December and has two funding strands.

The first strand is aimed at established charities, with a minimum income of over £500,000 per year, that want to use digital to take a major leap forward.

The second strand is aimed at more recently-established organisations that are successfully using digital, but need help scaling this up.

The new fund has been developed through a series of one-to-one interviews and workshops in London and Manchester.

Details on eligibility and applying can be found on the Big Lottery Fund’s website.

Dawn Austwick, chief executive of the Big Lottery Fund, said:

“We are delighted to launch our new £15m Digital Fund today. It will help both digital natives and digital pioneers maximise their impact, by putting people at the heart of their digital services.”
