Implementing Organisation:
Cambridgeshire County Council

Cambridgeshire County Council supports a network of around 50 Community Access Points (CAPs). The County supports the broadband infrastructure. This contract gives each CAP broadband access and wi-fi capacity within the building. 

CAPs were established over a decade ago and these locations are still well supported and the provision of wi-fi has helped further develop their use.

The main objectives of the CAP network are:

• Promoting and supporting digital inclusion

• Developing community capacity to run local digital inclusion initiatives

• Recruiting and training volunteer Digital Champions within communities
