Devices for Online Learning

We have a limited number of devices to allocate to families to support online learning.

The devices will be allocated on a needs basis. First to children who have no devices at home. Then to families with one device that is being used by a sibling at secondary school.

We already have a list of which children need them the most. If we are given more devices by the government, we will allocate them to families as soon as possible.

We will contact you to collect and sign a loan agreement if you are selected.
