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