BT has launched a new round of its BT Community Connections (BTCC) award scheme to help people get online in the South West.

Community and charitable groups are invited to apply for the awards, which include a laptop and a year's broadband internet connection.

Groups can also apply together for a BTCC Cluster Award to each receive additional packages of IT equipment.

Head of BT's charity programme, Beth Courtier, said: "BTCC remains a key element of our strategy to help people take full advantage of the huge benefits offered by the internet. In today's digital world, exclusion from the internet has become a key facet of social exclusion."
