9% of all children don’t have access to a laptop, desktop or tablet to learn from home. 880,000 children live in homes without wifi (Ofcom, 2020).
Those who have access to a computer have a significant advantage over those who don't. The closure of schools has exacerbated pre-existing inequalities, widening the attainment gap for disadvantaged young people.
The inequality of access to online learning has become painfully apparent during the pandemic, and it cannot go on. Education is a fundamental right of all children, and when the only access to it is digitally we have to ensure that no child is left out.

Camden Council set up a crowdfunding campaign to help end the digital divide, raising funds to buy devices for disadvantaged children in their Borough. They raised over £60,000.
Thanks to your amazing generosity, we’re currently in the process of distributing the first 96 computers to schools and have ordered a further 154
