BT Community Connections Scheme Now Open

BT Community Connections is an award scheme which enables Irish community and charitable organisations to get online and make use of information and communications technology (ICT).

There are more than 1,000 award packages available to groups who can demonstrate how an award will benefit their work and the local community.

Community and charitable organisations, working in any field of community benefit, located throughout the Republic of Ireland  or UK can apply for a laptop and a year's free broadband connection.   

In the past silver-surfers, cultural dance groups, conservation organisations, mountain rescue teams, family support groups, healthy living clubs, arts and music groups, sports teams and youth groups have all been award winners so don't miss your opportunity.
