Media Trust sets up digital media support scheme

Charity offers cash to projects working in disadvantaged and isolated communities

The Media Trust has set up a scheme that will give £500 to projects that support disadvantaged and isolated communities using digital media.

Through its Community Voices scheme, the charity will choose one community project a week and offer it a £500 grant as well as communications support.

Projects could include schemes such as digital photo exhibitions or social networking communities, or making a short film.

The charity is looking for "inspirational" projects to support, and the deadline for applications will be the end of March. A total of £10,000 is available.

"We know a wealth of great digital media work is already going on in communities, and this money will inspire new communities to find their voice and make it heard," said Gavin Sheppard, development director at the Media Trust.

The trust plans to launch the next stage of its Community Voices project - which will award grants to organisations that allow groups that feel "unheard or voiceless" to express themselves - early next year.
