CDS Donates Laptops to School Children Learning in Lockdown
CDS’s Director Henry Armstrong heard that the BBC were putting out appeals for old laptops to be donated to help support children who were home schooling, to gain access to a computer if there was not one in the household or where there was not sufficient in the household to be shared between home working parents and children or similar circumstances.
According to Ofcom, between 1.1 million and 1.8 million children do not have access to a laptop, desktop or tablet at home.
The campaign has been a great success, since launching their latest campaign, with the public’s help, they’ve had over 17,500 device donations and 30,000 devices have been pledged by businesses. There has also been £700,535 donated to charities and schools, from local businesses, trusts, individuals and foundations as a result of the campaign.
