Housing Association Clarion Futures are providing grants for community groups that can provide support for their residents and the wider community.
For full details check out the Clarion Future website: Community and digital grants | Clarion (myclarionhousing.com)
Community grants up to £5,000 for a project to help improve your local community. Clarion Futures fund a range of projects that encourage community engagement and promote health and wellbeing. This includes projects for young people or older people, projects that regenerate local facilities or estates, or projects that provide access to training or educational courses. The projects need to directly benefit Clarion residents and their neighbourhoods, but they can also support the wider community.
Digital grants up to £5,000 for innovative digital inclusion projects that help Clarion residents of all ages – and the wider community – to get online and safely and confidently use the internet as an everyday tool. Projects or activities should enable people to discover how developing digital skills and using online tools and services can enhance their daily lives.
