Funding grants available to create digital champions

Clarion Futures, part of the Clarion Housing Group, has funding available to help organisations to replicate an approach to embedding Digital Champions into employment programmes in order to address the essential digital skill needs of clients. Clarion Futures has developed a benchmark screening tool for organisations to use, and to be developed further through the partnerships formed. The funding partnership is also highly collaborative as organisations in receipt of grant funding work together to solve problems and discuss the challenges and impact of this work.

To date, the One Digital project has partnered with 10 organisations, spread across the UK, to replicate their approach to embedding Digital Champions within employment activity. The project has an additional 5 grants of £20k remaining to issue. They are looking to engage more organisations who provide employment support in relation to this funding offer.
