Tech for Good ‘Build’ Programme Launches

Posted by Christie McAlpine on 12th January 2021

Comic Relief and Paul Hamlyn Foundation have launched the latest round of the Tech for Good programme. The programme supports not-for-profit organisations to use technology to explore different approaches to delivering better services.

The Tech for Good 2021 ‘Build’ programme will enable organisations or partnerships to define, test and develop digital solutions over nine months that meet a social need or challenge. Applications that want to adapt or re-purpose existing technology to increase impact in their service delivery are also actively encouraged.

Applications are open to UK charities with incomes of between £75,000 and £10 million and projects should address one of their four core issue areas:

  • Children Survive and Thrive
  • Global Mental Health Matters
  • Fighting for Gender Justice
  • A Safe Place to Be

This round will fund up to 18 digital projects with investments of up to £70,000 over a period of nine months. Successful applicants will also have access to a package of technical support from CAST (Centre for the Acceleration of Social Technology), including 1-1 advice, collaborative workshops with your peers on the programme and online learning sessions.

Applications close at 12 noon on 12 February 2021.

Find out more and apply online via the Comic Relief website.
