We are a Social Enterprise based in Wiltshire whose core business is an online management system for clubs and groups (www.RunAClub.com) We work throughout the country with a wide range of Councils,  national and local sports groups and youth services, all of whom use the online platform to track use, monitor outcomes and report on impact.

During our work with a variety of local charitable groups, we identified a gap in the market for the provision of ad-hoc administrative support. We found a range of commercial administration services however none had the knowledge and experience of the voluntary and not for profit sector we have within our team which has lead us to launch Runyouradmin.com.

city.innovation@bristol.gov.uk

There are more opportunities than ever before for Bristol organisations to access ultrafast speeds and full fibre broadband thanks to new investment and competition in the broadband market of the city region.

The UK Government is helping by committing £1 billion+ to full fibre and wireless (5G) and developing a range of initiatives to help organisations join a full fibre future. To help prepare, Bristol City Council wants to get an up-to-date view of Bristol's businesses and organisations, large and small, of their experiences of their broadband connection and the demand for full fibre broadband, ultrafast speeds (above 300 mbps down) and higher quality connections.

Please take the Bristol business / organisation broadband survey (takes about 5 minutes) http://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/broadband/ Respondents completing the survey can opt-in to invites to future seminars to hear from other organisations about their experiences and speak to telecoms providers.

Survey respondents will also be amongst the first to know about expected new financial incentives from the UK Government to secure a full fibre connection. Check out case studies about the transformative effects of faster broadband - http://www.connectingbristol.org/superfastbusiness/
