Despite the best efforts of our schools in Haringey and the local authority, we know there are a number of children and young people who don’t have regular access to laptops, WiFi and other technological support at home.
These children and young people have faced additional challenges to those of their classmates since the onset of the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, but – with your help and support we can help bridge that digital divide.
“Access to IT is critical to ensuring that young people can carry on with their learning and be educated successfully…’ Andy Webster, Headteacher at Park View School
Haringey Giving has partnered with Haringey Council to launch the ‘Help Bridge the Digital Divide’ campaign in support of children and young people in the borough who don’t have access to laptops, WiFi and other technological support.
“Please support our campaign – donate now and help fund computers and WiFi access for Haringey students who need it the most.” Park View pupil Emmanuel
Please give whatever you can afford, however small or large. It could make a whole world
Here’s what your donation could give a young person
- £20 – One month’s supply of internet access/ WiFi

- £60 – One month’s supply of internet access/ WiFi + a mobile broadband device

Any donation is gratefully received and will go a long way to helping bridge the digital divide for children and young people across Haringey.
