The Liverpool City Region Combined Authority with the VS6 Partnership has launched the LCR Cares Digital Inclusion Fund to support community and voluntary organisations who are able to provide digital support and skills development for local residents who face additional social and economic barriers.

  • Young Care Leavers
  • Asylum seekers/refugees
  • Victims of domestic abuse.

Some examples (not exhaustive) of what the fund can consider:

  • Community venues that offer access to digital skills projects breaking down important issues such as using online financial and housing services
  • Projects that help to improve awareness of cyber crime
  • Training/accreditation for staff or volunteers to help them deliver digital inclusion courses.
