Last year CLASP offered funding support awards to 7 local authority led projects that were judged to be both innovative and potentially useful to a range of authorities outside the main applicant.
All the outputs from 4 of those projects are now online, and the others will follow shortly. I’ve attached short summaries of these 4 projects which include links to the full resources. We hope you’ll find these interesting. All materials are available for public sector organisations to adapt. Full links and contact details are in the summaries.
You can find out about all the projects that were selected last year, and download the 2012/13 application information at: http://www.claspinfo.org/funding
