Tim Joins Nominet Members GiveHub Panel

Tim Prater

We’re delighted that our very own Tim Prater has been selected to join the Nominet Members GiveHub Panel for 2022/23.

Prater Raines have been Nominet members since 2007. Tim applied to join the panel as he has extensive experience of evaluating competing bids and prioritisation through his time as a Councillor and Charity Trustee.

The Members’ GiveHub is an opportunity for Nominet members to support an organisation of their choice.

A fund of £50k each month is available. Applications are reviewed monthly by the GiveHub panel, a group of up to seven volunteers from the membership.

Members can apply for one grant for one organisation of up to £10,000 per financial year (1st April – 31st March) or multiple grants for multiple organisations up to a total of £10,000 per financial year. Organisations that receive funding will not be eligible for further funding until the next financial year regardless of the amount awarded.

The grant application must link to at least one of Nominet’s Public Benefit pillars: Connected, Inclusive and Secure.

Connected: The project is linked to improving digital access to the organisation’s services. The project is supporting people through the provision of devices or connectivity. The project is supporting a digital service the organisation has or is developing.

Digital Inclusion: The project is enabling more people to access the services of the organisation. The project is improving the digital skills within the organisation or the service users.

Secure: The project is working on internet safety or digital resilience for its staff or service users. Or the project is protecting vulnerable users from online harm.
