The Sector Challenge Programme

Aims/priorities: The Sector Challenge Programme is part of the Catalyst and The National Lottery Community Fund COVID-19 Digital Response fund. There are 12 Sector Challenges across four sectors most affected by COVID-19: early years; financial wellbeing; mental health and wellbeing; and sexual abuse and domestic violence. For each challenge, they are funding three charity or civil society organisations working in that area to come together with a digital partner to explore solutions using digital, data and design. Your charity will receive between £5,000 and £10,000 depending on the budget in your application.

  • Advance your skills and knowledge
  • Learn from experts and take part in a design process where you explore various approaches to potential digital solutions
  • Share experiences and ideas with your peers
  • Be part of designing an approach or solution which has a meaningful impact on the sector you work in, and the communities you support
