Meet Hilary, our 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.

resident scrutiny committee
Meet Bob, a member of our resident involvement committee
Bob is the “sort of guy who wants to get things done” and over the last 20 years he’s done exactly that for the local community and residents across the country.
For Bob, neighbourliness is at the heart of his life and he loves doing his bit on his estate to make it nicer for everyone.
As a member of one of our regional resident scrutiny committees and our Out and About network, Bob is also active in supporting residents on a wider scale. He sees his involvement as important in helping 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.”
