Giving a second life to tablets while increasing digital inclusion

Giving a second life to tablets while increasing digital inclusion

Environmental charity Hubbub and Virgin Media O2 have launched a £400,000 fund to make tablets and free data available to community organisations working with temporary accommodation services across the UK.

Through the Tech Lending Community Fund, grants of between £50,000 and £120,000 are available to help organisations such as local authorities, charities and social enterprises establish or further develop Tech Lending Hubs, where refurbished tablets will be loaned to residents in temporary accommodation so they can connect with loved ones, access healthcare, complete training or job applications and take part in virtual interviews.

These groups might include centres for refugees, housing for those at risk of homelessness or women’s refuges.

The deadline for applications is 23:59 on the 1st March 2022.
