Laptops for Children - Digital Drive Campaign activity update.

Laptops for Children - Digital Drive Campaign activity update.

To date, the partnership - between Cambridgeshire County Council, Peterborough City Council, Cambridge 2030, Library Services, Cambridgeshire Digital Partnership and the Cambridge Culture Foundation - has received the following donations:

Laptop donations: Total of 352 laptops donated to Cambridgeshire and Peterborough libraries and drop-in centres.

Financial donations: Total of £567,845. This is made up of business/individual donations, and Cambridgeshire County Council and Peterborough City Council funding. The majority of the financial donations are for ring-fenced to Peterborough and, in some cases, to specific schools or wards. More »

£130,000 of the funding was secured by the Director of Education (Cambridgeshire and Peterborough) specifically to support our maintained schools to increase the number of laptops available to children in the two authorities. This is sufficient to purchase 400 Windows laptops and cover the distribution costs.

The first batch of new laptops, Chromebooks and 4G routers will be distributed to schools in the week commencing 22nd February.

We have created an online system whereby businesses, other public bodies and individuals can make a financial donation in a fast, secure way. We have also set up a dedicated inbox to manage any enquiries: LaptopsForChildren@cambridgeshire.gov.uk.

We are also working with the Cambs Youth Panel which specialise in the recycling/reformatting of old laptops which are now beginning to be distributed to schools.

Our target is to continue to secure sufficient funding to ensure that every child and young person in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough has both the equipment and access to broadband that they need to maintain continuity of their learning and education in their homes. » Less

Local Community Rapid Testing programme now in place.

Local Community Rapid Testing programme now in place.

The local Community Rapid Testing programme, using lateral flow tests (LFTs) has launched successfully over the past two weeks, and we are encouraging people aged 18+ who are key workers or are having to leave home to go to work, to access rapid tests at sites across the county. The final two sites opened this week, and they are in Huntingdon and Cambridge, meaning we now have a site in each of the district and city areas. From next week we will be broadening the list of people who can access the rapid testing sites, tests to include a wider range of adults who are leaving home regularly.
Please can I ask you to share messages about the Community Rapid Testing programme, which is now available at the following locations:
* The Hub, High Street, Cambourne, South Cambridgeshire, CB23 6GW.
* Queen Mary Centre, Queen's Road, Wisbech, Fenland, PE13 2PE.
