We place a high value on sustainable and scalable projects that have the potential to make a significant difference to the greatest number of people. We recognise that a mix of approaches is required within each of our programmes to create maximum impact.
Our success lies in the strength of our partnerships. We work closely with foundations, NGOs, investors and commercial organisations across the UK and internationally to extend the reach and impact of the social investments that we make.

Digital Makers Fund – Second Call is now open
In partnership with Nesta we are working to find ways to equip our young people to be confident contributors and makers, able to harness and control digital technology to positively engage socially and economically with their communities.
Earlier this year, in partnership with Mozilla, the Digital Makers Fund awarded £260,000 to seven projects (up to £50,000 each). This backing helped Code Club on their way to creating 1,100 clubs since they set up in 2012, Technology Will Save Us to develop new DIY technology kits and Printcraft’s 3D programme bring to life 2,000 Minecraft creations.
The second call is now open and we are keen to hear from people, projects and organisations that use young people’s interests, passions and pastimes as a gateway to digital making, from 3D printing and physical computing to coding and programming. The deadline for application is 14 November 2013 via www.nesta.org.uk/digitalmakersfund
