Yip yippay, more Tech for Good funding is on the way…
The fund expects to open at the end of May. It will offer up to 12 x £50,000 grants towards “creating, adapting or scaling up digital solutions that improve the safety of women and girls affected by domestic abuse”. Applicants will be invited to address one of a set of design challenges, updated since the first round of funding in 2017.
Application guidance will appear on Comic Relief’s opportunities page when the fund opens. Hub subscribers will be notified when this happens. Sign up to be notified here then get a head start by reading the Wizard’s Guide to Creating a Winning Tech for Good Application.
