Throughout the pandemic the education of all children has been disrupted in this country but the less advantaged are suffering more acutely than others because of a lack of access to laptops and technology.
At the moment, this means little or no education at all. Many of these young people are in their GCSE or A level years and the impact on their long-term future could be considerable.
The CII along with the wider insurance market has been asked to help by donating either technology – new or used – or cash. With cash donated being used to purchase reconditioned technology.

1. Please check the minimum specifications here.
