Digital & Data Fund

The Digital & Data Fund was created in response to a growing need within the displaced community to connect with their loved ones, schools, and local services. Over the course of April, we heard the same story over and over again of families and individuals living in isolation, unable to contact anyone outside their household. For asylum seekers, it was often a choice between eating and data as financial support for asylum seekers is capped at £5.39 per day. 

At the beginning of May 2020, we launched an appeal on Localgiving. With the money raised from this appeal, we are able to help displaced people in Wales access data and devices.
