The first Meet and Code grants are being allocated across Europe — let's add Ireland's pin to the map next!

Meet and Code fund events that teach digital and coding skills to young people aged 8–24, and we at The Wheel are proud to be their Irish partner again in 2020. We have 15 €500 grants to offer this year, and we're encouraging Irish charities to submit their ideas for online events.

These events can take place any time during September or October 2020. Grants can be used to purchase software licences, pay for facilitators, help to promote the events, and more. The only limit is your imagination! If you're not sure what kind of event you want to run, take a look at some past Meet and Code events for inspiration.

Grants are allocated on a rolling basis, so charities are encouraged to register and apply ASAP.
