Digital skills grants

Support to get your community online.

Grants for community-based groups

We want everyone in our communities to get online and stay connected. We are offering grants of up to £5,000 for digital support projects. They are available to voluntary organisations working with our residents.

We support projects that help Clarion residents, and their wider communities, get online. We empower them to use the internet as an everyday tool, safely and confidently.

Projects or activities should explore how online tools and services can:

  • enhance their daily lives
  • unlock new opportunities
  • improve digital confidence
  • enable digital independence

Interested? Get in touch

Tackling digital exclusion

When the pandemic hit, a digital grant was awarded to Islington Healthwatch. The Clarion Futures award made it possible to provide digital online training to local residents. The award helped tackle digital exclusion to many.

The project had a particular emphasis on reaching:

those in sheltered accommodation from ethnic communities, where English is not the first language

A representative from Islington Healthwatch reported:

“One participant reports that she is more confident with her devices. She is using the internet safely, and feels better able to connect with friends now. This user received two support sessions.”
