We are always in need of laptops so remember you can donate your devices by visiting one of our drop points. We have also recently launched our 'E-waste Made Good' programme. If you're a business looking to pass on your office equipment please get in touch!

Digital Skills for Parents ๐ŸŽ“

During the spring we delivered a series of digital skills workshops with Henry Fawcett Children's Centre and ClearCommunityWeb, aimed at supporting parents online. Each participant took part in a short course to develop their foundational digital skills and got a laptop to take home at the end! Read more about the project here.

We're excited to announce that we will be running a second round of these workshops this Autumn term. If you're part of Henry Fawcett Children's Centre get in touch on 0207 091 1282. Sessions will run on Tuesday mornings from 26th September, click here to view the flyer.
