Am I eligible?
In order to apply for this funding, you must:
- Be a member of the Online Centres Network
- Not already be receiving funding from Good Things Foundation
If you applied for this funding in September but were not successful, you can apply again in this round.
What do I need to include in my idea?
There are a few things that we'd like to see in your idea and which will help you make a strong application. You will need to describe:
- Your chosen target audience of vulnerable people, and how you plan to engage with them (including establishing partnerships with other local organisations).
- The issues that your particular audience are likely to be experiencing and that you will attempt to address with the £2,000.
- How you plan to address these issues through your project activities, along with consideration of:
- a. How you expect it to work.
- b. How you will know it is working.
What will I have to do if my application is successful?
If your idea is successful and you receive £2,000 for its delivery, you will be required to guide 50 people through our short course 'Staying Safe' in 'Your Digital World' over 5 months. This is hosted on Learn My Way, our free online learning platform which is open to everyone.
We'd also like you to produce a short report at the end of the 5 months to describe your approach, and the impact it has had. This will both help you reflect on what you have learnt as a result of the project and how you can apply that learning in the future, but will also help us at Good Things Foundation understand what works with different people in different settings. We will help you think about the report as you progress through the project.
When will I receive funding if my application is successful?
The £2,000 will be released in two parts - £1,000 a the start of the project delivery in March 2018 and £1,000 at the end of the 5-month delivery in July 2018.
