Connecting Scotland Fast Track Closing at 5pm on Friday 6 August!
The Connecting Scotland fast track scheme is currently accepting applications of up to 10 devices (plus connectivity), but this will close on Friday 6 August at 5pm. This is open to organisations that can identify users who are:
- Digitally excluded, and
- On a low income, and
- At risk of social isolation and loneliness.
The three priority groups are:
- Older people (aged 60+)
- People with disabilities
- Single parents
Once an organisation receives their devices they have 14 days to deliver the devices to the user, and another 14 days from this date to upload the user data. You should ensure that you can meet these timescales before applying.
