Hello <<First Name>>

We’re pleased to announce that our Power Up programme is now open for applications from organisations based in Bournemouth, East London, Edinburgh and Glasgow.

Funding of between £50-000 - £150,000 is available to help you to give people a digital lift - for their business, their finances, their skills or their career. 

Through the fund, we want to work with you to power up people - giving them both digital skills and confidence, so they’re motivated to learn and keep on learning, applying digital skills in their lives, businesses and at work. 

We want to work with you to power up provision by improving existing services that already exist and embedding digital throughout programmes of support, so it doesn't feel like it's bolted on. 

Together, we’ll be powering up places - connecting community organisations, service providers, local authorities and more so support is joined up - and can lead to long term change and collaboration in communities.

We’d like to invite you to join our Learning Team at Online Centre
