A frequent question we get asked at DPN is – “Where does your funding come from?”

We are a part of several funding streams so that we can support and deliver digital training to as many people as possible. We do this by ensuring we have multiple diverse projects supporting a range of people across the South West of England.

You can find a list of our current projects below. Simply click each title for more information on each project.
