Volunteer digital champion

Being online can make such a difference to people in so many ways.

Hilary

volunteer digital champion

Meet Hilary – award-winning digital champion

Hilary is a Clarion resident who volunteers as a digital champion at one of our LiveSmart schemes for older people. In 2019, her outstanding efforts were recognised when she was crowned Clarion Futures Digital Champion of the Year. 

Hilary spends two days a week helping residents to get online and develop digital skills. She works with a range of residents, including people with sight impairments, epilepsy, arthritis and depression.

Her calm, friendly manner gives learners the confidence to use new technologies on their own. This enables them to see how digital skills can enhance their lives – helping them to stay in touch with family members, as well as to use online services.

“Being online can make such a difference to people in so many ways. It’s been great going from a learner myself to being able to share my knowledge with others,” says Hilary.

Meet Bob – resident involvement

Bob is the “sort of guy who wants to get things done” and, over the last 20 years, he’s got things done for the local community and residents across the country.

Involved in as much as he can, for Bob neighbourliness is at the heart of his life: doing his bit on his estate to make it nicer for all who live there.

Bob is also active in supporting residents on a wider scale as a member of one of our regional resident scrutiny committees and our Out and About network. He sees his involvement as important to help Clarion improve efficiency and make a real difference.

“Residents are the boots on the ground, letting Clarion know what’s happening on the estates,” says Bob. “I like to keep busy and want to do whatever I can if it makes life better for residents.”
