Small businesses and registered charities across York will have the chance to benefit from face to face advice on how they can speed up their broadband, from a £3,000 grant, at a series of road shows taking place across the city.
The drop in sessions, which are taking place throughout January, will showcase the York Connection Voucher Scheme which has been helping small businesses in York increase their broadband speed. At the events advice will be available on how to apply for a £3,000 Connection Voucher* and how it can transform the way businesses and registered charities operate.
Current road show events which have been confirmed are:
- Elvington Air Museum on Tuesday 13 January 8.30am-10.30am
- Hilton Hotel, Tower Street on Wednesday 14 January 3.30pm-5.30pm
- Holiday Inn, Tadcaster Road on Tuesday 20 January 8.30am-10.30am
- Explore Acomb Library Learning Centre on Tuesday 20 January 12.30pm-2.30pm
- West Offices Customer Centre Thursday 22 January 8.30am-11.30am
The event comes on the back of new projects being created in York after the city received a share of the SuperConnected Cities Programme fund from the Department for Culture Media and Sport.
More information will also be available about the extension of the scheme which will now be open to those who apply for funding after the current March deadline on a first come first served basis. Small businesses and charities are advised however to apply for a voucher before the March deadline to avoid disappointment.
“The free events are a great opportunity for businesses and registered charities to find out about York’s digital progression and how they can benefit. A wide range of information on how a £3,000 grant can improve businesses and charities across the city will be available and I would urge these organisations to drop in to the sessions provided. The Connection Voucher Scheme, together with other digital projects will help York businesses to be competitive and to continue to prosper.”
