About:

Clarion Futures work with charities, social enterprises and any other organisation making a positive difference in our communities. Every year they support thousands of people into work, help people manage their money, improve their digital skills and empower people to develop strong connections in the community.

Grants of between £1,000 and £5,000 will be 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 and the wider community to get online and stay online, and to use the internet as an everyday tool, safely and confidently.

Applications are open on a rolling basis; however to be considered for Round 15, applications must be submitted by 12 noon Wednesday 13th March 2024.

Before you apply, please read on to see if your organisation is eligible.
