An open call has now been issued for the Connected Communities Innovation Fund.
This fund is a joint venture from Nesta and the Office for Civil Society, and follows on from the first round of innovation funds from 2016/2017.
There will still be a strong focus on mobilising volunteers aged 50+, however the funding is also open to initiatives that will focus on people who want to give less intensley and people who want to connect online.
The four main themes for the funds are:
– Community connections and thriving places
– Community resilience in emergencies
– Digital social action
– Improving our environment
