Online Briefing Workshop – UK-SPF Digital Connectivity in Community Facilities Grants Programme

The Liverpool City Region Combined Authority’s (LCR CA’s) local investment plan for the UK Shared Prosperity Fund (UKSPF) programme – the UK’s successor to EU Structural funds – has now been signed off by central Government.  

The local UKSPF investment plan includes a grants programme focussed on Digital Connectivity for Community Facilities.  VOLA has been appointed by the LCR CA to manage this programme.

The application process for the first grant round is due to open on Monday 30th January, with a 2-week response deadline.  Grants will be awarded to successful applicants before the end of March 2023.

Prior to the application launch, we will be holding two online (Zoom) briefing sessions for interested applicants on;

  • Monday 23rd January, 1.30 – 3.00pm
  • Tuesday 24th January, 10.00 – 11.30am

(Same session being run twice.)

The briefing session will cover fundamentals such as the purpose of the fund, finer eligibility criteria and key requirements of applicants, the application process, etc.  In addition, it will provide information and tips on sourcing appropriate digital equipment (computer hardware, software, etc.), cyber security and other key considerations.
