DCMS launches new pilot £150K Media Literacy Train-the-Trainer Grant Scheme - apply by 29 November


DCMS has launched a new pilot £150k Media Literacy Train-the-Trainer Grant Scheme which they are inviting media literacy charities and non-profits to bid into. Please contact DCMS with any questions on medialiteracy@dcms.gov.uk.

Please see below for information from DCMS:

This pilot grant scheme is intended to fund organisations who already have experience of supporting teachers with media literacy, to adapt and tailor their educational materials for teachers and schools working with SEND children. The scheme is open to projects targeting children of any age range, or with any type of SEND.

We expect bids to range from £5K-£75k, however bids of all sizes will be considered within the scheme. This grant follows commitments made in the recently published Online Media Literacy Strategy and Action Plan, and supports our ambitions to take an inclusive approach to media literacy and online safety.

Applications for the grant scheme are open until 29 November 23:59 GMT. Further details about the scheme and how to apply can be found on the government website.

We are going to be running some applicant information sessions in the w/c 15 November to provide some details about the scheme and application process. If you are interested in attending or have any questions about the scheme more generally please email medialiteracy@dcms.gov.uk. We are keen to encourage applications from a wide range of charities, so if you know of any other organisations who may be interested in this scheme please do forward on the details.
