Give a laptop

Last summer local BBC radio stations helped members of the public donate thousands of old laptops and tablets for schoolchildren to use across England. For those pupils, who were sharing phones at home while learning in lockdown, it made a huge difference.

With schools now closed again we’re once more asking you to help those pupils still in need.

Perhaps you received new laptops, tablets or mobiles for Christmas or you may have old devices you don’t need anymore?

We are working to join the dots between your devices and the children who may need them the most. We are sharing details of companies and charities who can help us achieve our aim of getting devices to pupils.

Having good internet and a computer is crucial for kids having to learn from home and education is so important.

 

families with 2 or more children at secondary most will probably have one computer so it’s not possible for additional children to learn effectively.

 

anything to help this situation has to be a good thing.

Great idea and please support it - but let us not forget that the government have not kept the promise of delivering on this and schools are still waiting for the laptops they were promised for the pupils we are talking about - in many areas of the country less than 40% of the laptops promised have been delivered.

This has to be a priority with schools closed for the majority of pupils again.
