For Digital Skills and to Train Individuals – Grants Round-Up from Thomas Wall Trust


The Thomas Wall Trust continues its work to provide funding within the areas of education and training. Here is a round-up of their most recent grants for this season.

Digital Skills 2020 Grants Programme

Grants of up to £5,000 are available for registered charities and not-for-profit organisations to support specific projects or core activities that support literacy, numeracy, digital and additional skills in order to increase employment prospects within the UK.

The funding is for projects working with disadvantaged people aged 18 years or older to improve their basic digital skills.

The deadline for expression of interest applications is Tuesday 31st March 2020.

For more information and how to apply, visit the Trust’s website.

Training Grants for Individuals

Grants of up to £1,500 are available for supporting motivated adults living in the UK to undertake education and training that will increase their chances of employment.

Funding can be used to undertake accredited vocational training up to level 3 and towards other costs associated with studying (including: child care, travel and mobility costs, and accessible study materials).

Thomas Wall Trust says that applicants should be unemployed for at least 6 months within the last 2 years.

This grants programme is normally open all year round so the scheme can be seen as a Continuous Rolling Programme; but the Trust does advise that grants are awarded on a first come first serve basis.

For more information and how to apply, visit the Trust’s website.
