Digital grants

Clarion Futures Digital Grants Programme

Grants of between £1,000 and £5,000 are available to organisations seeking to deliver innovative, well designed projects that support Clarion residents and the wider community to address digital exclusion.

The Fund is designed to support Clarion residents of all ages to get and stay online and to use the internet as an everyday tool, safely and confidently.

We are looking to fund projects and activities that focus on:

  • Supporting residents to discover the full scope of how the internet can assist them in their everyday lives, and to provide them with the skills and confidence to do so
  • Support residents to access the tools that meet their individual needs and circumstances
  • Encourage residents to use the internet securely and with confidence
  • Support residents of all ages, regardless of whether they go online regularly, to use it safely, and avoid risky and/or illegal behaviour.
