Hello there

My name is Alex and I'm a freelance writer and editor working with charities. My speciality is helping organisations bring their work to life through inspiring stories about the people they support, but I can help with general writing, editing and proofing too. If any of this sounds interesting, please take a look at my website: www.charitystory.org.uk  

If you'd like to talk informally about how we might work together, I'm always VERY open to meeting in a Bristol cafe for a cuppa, cake and a chat! Just drop me an email.

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.

How could gigabit full fibre broadband boost your organisation? Give us your views!

city.innovation@bristol.gov.uk
Content: 

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/
