The Digital Edge is a £2 million investment programme to fund new ideas for using digital technology to improve young people’s economic and social participation. As part of this programme, we have identified four key areas where we believe young people face the greatest challenge and digital technology can be used to greatest effect.
We’re looking to invest in partners and ideas that address the challenges we have identified and we look forward to working with you to do so.
