We rely on technology, now more than ever – it’s keeping us connected, entertained and informed during lockdown.
But thousands of young people are stuck at home without a phone or tablet. They can’t access remote learning, or contact care workers and family members that they rely on for support.
We can change that, together.
Donate your old phones and tablets to The Great British Tech Appeal and we’ll gift them to families and support workers in-need, with 3 months free data.
How big is the problem?
- Up to 1 million households don’t have adequate access to a device or connectivity at home.
- 300,000 young people can’t contact essential support workers due to digital poverty.
- 25% of abuse sufferers rated their safety at less than 5/10 in lockdown.
