Paul Hamlyn Foundation: Tech for Good Fund

Together with Comic Relief the Paul Hamlyn Foundation will open the next round of funding for the Tech for Good programme, Build, in January 2021.

The Tech for Good programme was created in response to the need for charities to use technology to explore different approaches to delivering better services. The Covid-19 crisis has increased the need for organisations to explore how digital and design approaches can be used to create more impact for the people they work with.

Over £1 million will be available to individual not-for-profit organisations or those working in partnership to define, test and develop user-centred digital solutions that meet a social need or challenge linked to Comic Relief’s Social Change Strategy.

Applications that aim to adapt or re-purpose existing technology are also actively encouraged; we know that re-use can be just as important and effective as building something new.

We are also interested in applications from partnerships between multiple not-for-profit organisations of different sizes and backgrounds that aim to work together to address or improve a service delivery problem in their areas of work.

The programme offers grants of up to £70,000 over a nine months. The funding is for a combination of internal delivery costs, and contracting support from external digital and technical development agencies. Funded partners will also gain access to tailored intensive technical support from experts and advisors in a support programme provided by CAST.

Funding is open to UK not-for-profit organisations with incomes of between £75,000 and £10 million, and applications should address one of the following core issue areas: A Safe Place To BeFighting For Gender JusticeChildren Survive and Thrive, and Global Mental Health Matters. Applications focused on challenges related to disability also welcome, we know that digital technology has huge potential in tackling issues for people with a range of disabilities.

You’ll be able to find the funding opportunity here on 8th January 2021.
