As of yesterday, we anticipate schools across the UK remaining in lockdown until early March. Because of this, the need for laptops or tablets is acute! Many households may still lack adequate devices for distance learning, or may be struggling with one device for the whole family.
Perhaps you’ve recently upgraded your laptop and still have your last one set aside for emergencies. If so, it can help a family whilst we’re in lockdown.
Here’s a decent list of organisations from the BBC, and a couple places in our vicinity:
- BBC list, which covers many geographical areas
- Email our friends from Sopwell Community Trust to offer a laptop, or enquire about tutoring assistance, etc
- Computer Friendly St Albans
