Comic Relief and Paul Hamlyn Foundation have launched the latest round of the Tech for Good programme. The programme supports not-for-profit organisations to use technology to explore different approaches to delivering better services.
The Tech for Good 2021 ‘Build’ programme will enable organisations or partnerships to define, test and develop digital solutions over nine months that meet a social need or challenge.

Applications are open to UK charities with incomes of between £75,000 and £10 million and projects should address one of their four core issue areas:
This round will fund up to 18 digital projects with investments of up to £70,000 over a period of nine months. Successful applicants will also have access to a package of technical support from CAST (Centre for the Acceleration of Social Technology), including 1-1 advice, collaborative workshops with your peers on the programme and online learning sessions.
