ConnectingKids@Home – Do you have an old laptop or computer you can donate?

The Hounslow’s Promise local education charity is working with local schools to help provide computers or laptops to local school pupils who are needing to study at home but don’t have access to a computer or the internet. It is also supported by the London Borough of Hounslow and Hounslow Chamber of Commerce.

 

Do you have an old laptop or computer you can donate? We estimate around 1000 children in Hounslow need support. If you can donate a laptop or computer, please email seema.malhotra.mp@parliament.uk and info@hounslowspromise.org 

with your name, address and tel no, along with details and specs of the computer if possible e.g. is it a laptop, PC, Mac or Chromebook/ operating system/ processor speed etc.

We’ll email you with specifications and how to make sure you back up and delete any data before donating. Accessories e.g. spare laptop charger, keyboard, mouse are also needed. You can read our guidance for those who would like to donate a device here.

The computers can either be collected from you or dropped off at a few drop off points. Computers will be cleaned down, safety tested and re-imaged before schools pass on to children and families who need them. The project is also being supported by local businesses.

This initiative has also featured on Forbes, you can read the article at this link.

Primary Subject Leader Networks – “I really like the idea of subject specialists leading subject leader meetings.”

Deep Dive Subject Leader Training – “Thank you for the very detailed and thorough subject leader checklist. It is an extremely useful and much necessary exercise. It's been an eye opener. Thank you”
