Call to run a project to help address the digital divide in response to Coronavirus. To deliver additional bolt-on activity to existing ESF projects. 100% ESF ‘Lump Sum’ based funding. 

The first is that of having physical access to the internet, i.e. a device that will allow the user to access the internet. The second is the issue of data poverty. 
The short-term activity will consist of projects procuring and loaning an appropriate device (e.g. tablet, laptop) and providing a three-month allowance of data, provided via a data dongle, to existing ESF participants. Activity will also include a small amount of set up support to enable users to understand functionality and get online.
