A new £1 million digital development fund, from Comic Relief and the Paul Hamlyn Foundation, is offering grants of up to £70,000 to UK non-profits with an annual income of £70,000 - £1 million, or those working in partnership. This is part of the Tech For Good programme.

Funding will go to organisations that can develop, define or repurpose digital tools, platforms and products that meet social challenges. Successful applicants will also get technical support from the Centre for the Acceleration of Social Technology (CAST).

The work can be aimed at a local, regional, national or UK-wide level. Funds will be released over nine months, from June 2021 - February 2022.

Your digital development project should address issues around disability and inclusion, or one of Comic Relief's four areas:

  • Children Survive and Thrive.
  • Global Mental Health Matters.
  • Fighting for Gender Justice.
  • A Safe Place to Be.

Projects previously funded include a digital chatbot service, by Bipolar UK; and a digital service for employers to learn about domestic violence and respond to a workplace domestic abuse issue, by Hestia. 

Applications close at 12pm (noon) on Friday 12 February 2021.
