Tech for Kids – Can You Help a Disadvantaged Child?

7 Jan, 2021

January is always a good time for a clear out, but could you help a disadvantaged child with their education at the same time too? Last year, 575 million school days were missed and it hit both parents and children hard but those from disadvantaged backgrounds were hit the hardest.

During the last lockdown there were concerns over the digital divide between families; those with laptops and fast internet speed and those who may not be able to get online at all.  Between March and December last year the Government delivered more than 560,000 devices to schools and councils in England with promises of a further 100,000 by the end of this week but it is still not enough.  The Children’s Commissioner reported that the disadvantage gap has widened as a result of the first lockdown.  In addition, children were around three months behind their education in September, four months in the most deprived areas.

Let’s make sure all of our local children have access to education and the best opportunities possible for learning.

How can you help?

Do you have any unused IT equipment at home or in the office that’s taking up cupboard space? This could be an old laptop, tablet computer, mouse or keyboard.  If so, could you donate this to a Charity or local school in your area to help support the education of a school child?

A list of Charities who can help you donate equipment to a school within your area is available on the BBC Radio website.  From this list, we would recommend Business2Schools as they cover most of England.  Alternatively, you can get in touch with your local school directly.

ISO Quality Services Ltd are proud to specialise in the implementation and certification of the Internationally recognised ISO and BS EN Management Standards.
