What is Getting Oxfordshire Online and who is involved in the partnership? Watch our latest video to find out – with thanks to our friends at Nominet.
Be Free Young Carers worked with Getting Oxfordshire Online to provide much-needed laptops to young carers, which helped this already disadvantaged group keep up with school work during the pandemic, and stay connected with their social networks.
Some families do not qualify for benefits such as Free School Meals, but their household income is only just over the threshold, which means the cost of a laptop can be a serious burden to them. Six students from Cheney School have received extra help via Getting Oxfordshire Online.
The 11-18 secondary comprehensive school near Blackbird Leys serves some of the most disadvantaged communities in Oxfordshire. A donation of 32 refurbished laptops from Getting Oxfordshire Online is helping more students access their learning.
