The Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS) is inviting applications for its Media Literacy Taskforce Fund to award grant funding to projects piloting new methods of delivering media literacy interventions to ‘hard to reach’ citizens.

The grant scheme will provide funding to organisations piloting new methods of engaging ‘hard to reach’ citizens with media literacy initiatives. They are interested in piloting projects that will work through local communities to engage ‘hard to reach’ citizens in ways that are tailored to their needs and relevant to their daily lives.

They are encouraging proposals that will demonstrate partnership across organisations with expertise of how to engage specific ‘hard to reach’ citizens — for example, working with local governments, local charities or youth groups. As well as applications from individual organisations, they will also be accepting applications from consortia who can demonstrate the requirements set out in the ‘project criteria’ section, across numerous organisations. Consortia can include public bodies outside of central government.
