Orkney youngsters urged to apply for mobile data top-up scheme

Young folk are being encouraged to apply for free additional mobile data, if they need it for extracurricular activities.

Young people in Orkney who require additional mobile data for school or youth work activities, or attend a youth club, are being encouraged to apply for free £10 voucher top ups.

According to Orkney Islands Council, mobile data usage is at an all-time high during these challenging times, but thanks to the council’s community learning and development team, young people across Orkney can access mobile data top-ups to enable them stay connected.

The vouchers are the result of funding from Youth Scotland Rural Action Fund. Youngsters are being urged to apply for the scheme — even if they have already benefited from a voucher in the past.

Successful applicants will be sent a £10 voucher code to use on their device, delivered on a first-come, first-served basis while funding is available. The vouchers can be applied for as many times as required.

Kerry Spence, OIC community learning and development manager, said: “We have been delighted to be able to offer these £10 top ups to young people who require it and would like to encourage further applications.”
