Funding , Digital Skills
Skills for Life Network

BT Community Connections is a nationwide award scheme that connects local communities and voluntary groups to the internet.

Since 2000, the scheme has awarded more than 4,600 internet-ready PCs to community and voluntary organisations. In 2006/7 over 1,300 awards will be made to groups who can demonstrate how a PC and internet connection will benefit their work and the local community.

Successful applicants in the past include elderly silver-surfer groups, disability groups, music groups, refugee support groups, youth groups, environmental groups, victim support groups, cultural groups, family support groups and sport groups.

Note: The closing date for applications for 2006/07 is Thursday 15 February 2007.

Every application will be assessed and those short listed will be judged by a regional panel in England, or national panel in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

If you think your group could benefit from this award then visit the BT Community Connections website.
