This is an opportunity for not-for-profit organisations that already have some technological capacity to take their digital innovation projects forward to create social change by delivering new ideas or more effective services.
To be eligible, projects should be using software and digital technology as a part of a solution that addresses any of Comic Relief’s four strategy themes, which are:
- Investing in Children and Young People
- Empowering Women and Girls
- Building Stronger Communities
- Improving Health and Wellbeing
Successful applicants could expect to receive funding of between £15,000 and £47,000 for nine months alongside access to dedicated technical expertise and an intensive support programme between July 2018 and March 2019.
The funding is for projects at any stage of development, with solid user-centred research, a clear problem to address, and a compelling digital solution to achieving this. The technology may be simple or cutting edge. The funding is for new products and services that can be shared with the wider not-for-profit sector.
