Give a Laptop Campaign

remote-services

Local BBC radio stations are helping with donation of old laptops and tablets for school children to use for remote learning.

Last summer local BBC radio stations helped members of the public donate thousands of old laptops and tablets for school children to use across England. With schools now closed again they are once again asking you to help those pupils still in need.

How to access a device

If you are a school or training professional who would benefit from receiving a donated device, we have listed the scheme that can help below.
