We are delighted to be partnering with Facebook to launch the Great Get Together Facebook Community Grants programme. Inspired by how communities around the UK have worked to stay connected during the Covid crisis, we’ll be awarding grants to enable this incredible work to continue throughout the rest of the year.
We’re looking for projects that build virtual connections in local communities in creative and innovative ways. Organisations can apply for up to £1000. Facebook will also offer a package of digital support, including mentoring help to enable organisations to fully optimise their use of the platform.
Grants will be awarded to projects that take place virtually, and applications can be for technology costs (either hardware or software), for project costs (including staff time and other resources) or for training costs (including those that support those who are not currently digitally engaged).
Organisations applying must have a formally recognised structure, and have previously been engaged with the Great Get Together or the More in Common network. The activities detailed in the application can take place at any point between July – December 2020.
Essential criteria for applicants:
- Applicants must be a registered charity, a CIO, a CIC or a social enterprise
- Applicants must have previously been involved in either organising or participating in a Great Get Together or be engaged in the More in Common network.
Application deadline: Applications must be received by midnight on Sunday 12 July.
