Charity description

Digital Xtra Fund logo
Digital Xtra Fund is a Scottish charity supporting extracurricular initiatives which teaches young people the skills they will need to succeed in an increasingly digital world.

The Fund is committed to giving young people across Scotland access to advanced digital skills activities regardless of their gender, background, or where they live. Our aims are to: 
  • Inspire the next generation to understand and create with technology, not just consume it
  • Enable exiting extracurricular digital skills activities for young people across Scotland
  • Engage industry with supported activities, giving experts and young people the opportunity to connect

We believe every young person in Scotland should have opportunities to learn to code and be digitally creative, as well as understand the future career opportunities and pathways which require these skills. Digital Xtra Fund is particularly interested in supporting activities which meet the following objectives:
  • Increase number and range of young people learning digital technologies skills
  • Increase participation in extracurricular digital technologies related activities among:
    • young people who are unengaged in digital technologies
    • young people from groups¬†underrepresented in digital technologies, especially girls and young women
    • young people from areas of high deprivation and/or rural isolation
  • Encourage Industry, the Education sector and Activity Providers to work together to engage young people around digital technologies
  • Promote digital technologies as an attractive career path including highlighting various pathways into a career in digital tech or computing science
