Lockdown IT 

 

As schools are now again closed we are really worried about the effect this will have on children who don't have access to computers or tablets at home.

 

This has the potential to be even worse than the first mass school closure as there is an expectation for all children to be learning from home via their computers. For some children this will simply not be an option and they will be left behind.

 

Education is the most important way that children can have the chance to access all the opportunities that are given to their more wealthy peers.

 

We are working with local schools, charities and authorities to give computer equipment to the families who most need it. If you can support us in this every £1 will make a difference (more info on the fundraising page):
