The BT Community Connections Awards are provided and administered by British Telecom. The awards scheme is intended to provide voluntary groups and charitable organisations working to benefit the community in the UK with IT equipment – 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 and these applications will be given priority. Applications are welcomed from any community group or charitable organisation working to benefit the community, including religious groups who work in the wider community rather than promote religion.
Eligible areas of interest include:
• Older people.
• Family issues.
• Multi-cultural awareness.
• Youth groups.
The deadline for applications is 15 September. To find out more, please follow this link: http://bit.ly/ltukfR
