Social Tech Trust opens a new £0.5m grant fund in a call for 'Tech to Unite Us'

02 July 2018

Tech to Unite Us aims to demonstrate how tech can reach its transformative potential when it’s driven by one of the greatest opportunities of our time – equality.

The UK’s leading dedicated grant maker in socially motivated tech, formerly known as Nominet Trust, is calling for eligible ventures to apply for a grant of up to £45K over a 9-12-month funding period. Technical assistance will be provided to accelerate venture growth.

The inaugural grant fund of the Trust’s Innovate Social Tech programme will support up to 10 ambitious ventures using tech in inspirational and transformative ways.

This is a call for radical new approaches that shift the balance of ‘power to people and communities‘ who want to challenge an unequal status quo. The charity is calling on ambitious early-stage ventures who are using tech to unite us – whether that’s using tech to increase access, opportunity or quality of outcomes in terms of wealth, health, education, political participation, community engagement or social justice.

Applications are open until Wednesday 25th July and funding decisions will be announced in October.  Read more…
