The deadline for Falkirk Council’s COVID-19 Digital Exclusion Fund is 11am on Monday 15th March.
The council has allocated at least £50,000 to support people who are digitally excluded due to cost; the funding will support the cost of equipment and getting connected.
The aim of the fund is to support organisations support people who are digitally excluded.
Organisations can apply for up to £5,000 to provide connectivity, devices and support to people living in Falkirk who are BOTH:
- digitally excluded (do not have an appropriate device and/or are not connected to the internet at home)
- on low incomes and cannot afford to buy a device or pay for internet access
