Internet Devices

Go straight to the Registration Form

During the current COVID-19 Pandemic, we are pleased to be able to provide free internet devices and data for people and organisations in need if they meet simple qualifying criteria.  Our aim is to try and help people throughout Cambridgeshire with devices, data and digital skills training.

Our work is funded by Cambridge City Council, Cambridge City Homes, South Cambridgeshire District Council as well as donations from individuals, businesses and trusts.  We have laptops, tablets, 4G SIM cards, and Mobile Wi-Fi devices available.  Most equipment is new – some is refurbished.  Most equipment is given out permanently, while some is provided on loan. 

Families and individuals can apply to us directly, or we can accept agency referrals.  We have a short form which will help us to see which scheme would suit your situation.  The online form is available here: Registration Form

Please Note:  The grant funding we received from local councils is almost completely spent, but please still complete the form as we may be able to help using donations but this is now very limited.  We still have some donated second-hand equipment to distribute.       

You can also email help@cambridgeonline.org.uk to request a paper copy of the form, or call us on 01223 300407 to complete the form by phone. The phone line is open 9:30am to 3:30pm Monday to Friday, or leave a message and we will call you back at a time to suit you.

Examples where we can help:
A single mum living in South Cambridgeshire who is out of work has an internet connection, but needs a laptop for her 11 year old son to use to access online learning at a village college.
A shielding older person living in council housing in Cambridge with no internet access needs a laptop and mobile 4G Wi-Fi internet connection to keep in touch with friends and relatives.
A young adult needs a computer tablet with 4G SIM card to keep in touch with mental health support services.

There is no deadline for applications.  We aim to give a decision within a week, with equipment delivery within two weeks.
