What is GIVEIT
It’s about helping the poorest families in our communities in the UK with provision of Laptops to improve their lives and children’s educational prospects.
An estimated 1 million children and young people and their families still don’t have adequate access to a device or connectivity at home, and this is just in England, the 6th biggest economy in the World!
Digital exclusion can lead to poorer health outcomes and a lower life expectancy, increased loneliness, social isolation, and less access to jobs and education. It can mean paying more for essentials, financial exclusion and an increased risk of falling into poverty. There is also a risk that digitally excluded people lack a voice and visibility, as government services and democracy increasingly move online.
