Digital grants to help voluntary groups


The successful groups are Alcester Town Council, Bearley Village Hall Trust, Bidford Community Library, Heart of England Mencap, Long Compton Parish Council and Village Hall Committee, Southam Church

A range of innovative applications were received and this funding will now increase access to WI-FI in community venues, enable volunteer trainers and digital champions to help people use technology including mobile phones, tablets and laptops.

The Digital Inclusion Grants programme has been made possible through funding of £40,000 provided by Orbit Heart of England to support collaboration and partnership across the district. Voluntary Action Stratford-upon-Avon (VASA) has been working in partnership with Stratford District Council and Orbit to provide support to communities and groups in their application.
