FUNDING: BT Community Connections Reopens for Applications

The BT Community Connections scheme has opened for a second 2011 round

The awards scheme is intended to provide voluntary groups and charitable organisations working to benefit the community in the UK with IT equipment and Internet access. Successful applicants to the programme will receive a laptop and a year's free broadband Internet connection.

In particular, the scheme is keen to target areas of deprivation which normally receive little or no funding and would otherwise have no IT provision

The award will be 12 months’ free connection to BT Business Total Broadband Advance, which includes features described in the standard products and services terms.

The deadline is 15 September 2011 and winners will be notified by 12 November 2011.
