As a charity our programmes are all about empowering young people with digital skills. A lack of digital skills and access can have a huge negative impact on a person’s life, leading to poorer health outcomes, increased loneliness and social isolation, less access to jobs and education.
The Digilearning Foundation specialises in levelling the playing field and providing digital skills support for all. We were awarded a small grant from UK Youth after applying for their micro grant.
With help from UK Youth we managed to give some of the most vulnerable participants brand new laptops and we have seen productivity, engagement and creativity skills all improve.
The purpose of the grant was to purchase laptops for the attendees of our digital skills programmes. We gifted laptops to some of the most vulnerable students.
We will also use part of the funding to provide a pathways coordinator to our participants of our next programme. This will provide more 1-2-1 support to the attendees of onext programme.
We are extremely grateful for the support of UK Youth and look forward to working with them more in the future.
