Last winter South Cambridgeshire District Council awarded Cambridge Online a £5,000 grant to help digitally excluded children to get online. Full details of the Press Release announcing the grant can be seen here.
The aim of the scheme which opened on 21 December 2020 was to provide computer devices and internet connections to allow families with children online access for education, to access services or for social interaction. Applicants needed to be digitally excluded families with a child 18 or under in March 2020 living in South Cambridgeshire. The scheme was funded through the Government’s Winter Support Grant to provide essential services.
This funding is now all spent, but people can still apply for help under our general scheme. Please go to this page for more details: Internet Devices
