BT WiFi have joined forces with Oldham Local Authority and The Radclyffe School to create a pilot scheme which offers Internet access to families who do not currently have broadband or internet access at home.
Who can get help – Increased internet access is available to families with vulnerable and disadvantaged children from early years up to 16 if you:
• don’t have access to a fixed broadband connection
• cannot afford the additional data needed to access educational resources or social care service
In order to be able to benefit from the pilot scheme you need to have access to a BT Wifi hotspot (this does not mean you have BT Wifi yourselves but it is available in your area) – this needs to be checked at https://www.btwifi.com/find/ and will show up on your device’s available WiFi networks as “BT Wi-fi”.
• The student/family will then be issued with a voucher (this is a code that will be emailed to you) which can be used for up to three devices
• You will connect using the information attached to the email (we can arrange another method of providing this if you have absolutely no Internet access)
In order to take part in the pilot you must also agree to provide feedback on the scheme when requested.
If you are interested, please email email@example.com and we will let you know if you have been successful in accessing the pilot scheme. If you would like to take part, please respond quickly as we only have a limited number of vouchers available.
