The Connectivity Voucher Scheme aims to help businesses, charities, social enterprises and other not-for-profit organisations to take advantage of faster broadband connections. It is funded by the Government’s Urban Broadband Fund and the European Regional Development Fund.
Digital Birmingham will cover up to £3,000 of the connection costs for eligible organisations (usually enough to pay for all the work), and as it’s a grant not a loan, you don’t have to pay it back.
Full details of the grant process and the benefits of the connection scheme will be explained at the launch, which features key presenters, case studies and an exhibition. Suppliers and experts will be on hand to provide advice and discuss your specific requirements.
Clearly, the Digital Economy is an important part of Digbeth’s development. We therefore welcome this event, and encourage all local organisations who are able to attend to do so.
