Community Voices digital media grants

Digital storytellers will be interested to hear that one £500 award per week is available between now and March 2010. That’s what Community Voices has to offer those in England using digital media to help empower disadvantaged communities:

“Media Trust is always looking to celebrate the varied and inspiring ways you are using digital media to help empower disadvantaged communities. And now Community Voices has 20 x £500 awards to give away before the end of March 2010 – that’s one every week.  If you’re helping to give your community a voice through digital media we’d like to hear from you, and so would many other communities seeking help. Projects selected will be showcased on this website, plus each project will receive a bursary for a place at one of our training events, and a wealth of additional communications support.”

Thanks to Alyson Fielding for letting me know about this. She said: “Community Voices covers English Regions only, not Wales as far as I know, but might be useful for your contacts working across both England and Wales”.

    Dear Aberth Digital Storytelling,

    Thanks for the blog about our Community Voices Inspiring Voices awards. I’m the Project Coordinator for Community Voices and very happy to answer questions, etc.

    Community Voices is an England wide project, only so we are unable to offer awards and grants to communities outside of England.

    Having said that we very conscious of the wealth of digital media activity that is already taking place across the UK, and are therefore keen to avoid simply adding to the landscape without adding value. We have a small Community Voices group/discussion forum on the Social By Social site (, which you may be interested to contribute to.

    I hope this is useful? Do please email the Community Voices team at
