    Nesta ShareLab Fund: Funding to Develop Digital Platforms to Address Social Challenges

    The fund provides grants of between £15,000 and £30,000 and aims to support early stage organisations to develop and apply digital platforms to address a social challenge.

    The theme of the fund this year is "prevention"; recognising the pressure on local authorities and other public-sector organisations.

    Nesta is inviting EOI's from people with ideas that use digital platforms to relieve pressure on existing public services.

    Example areas might include: Connecting the elderly, addressing transport poverty, sharing community resources, reducing waste and improving sustainability, supporting communities to help themselves, supporting people with low level care needs, encouraging children to learn and play, addressing anxiety and mental health issues in young people and tackling homelessness. Funding can be used to cover direct staff costs, related staff costs and learning and development/user research.

    The deadline for applications is Friday 05 January 2018.
