Oldham Athletic Community Trust (OACT) and IT support specialists Remedian have teamed together for a brand new community initiative, titled 'Digital Devices'.
The initiative aims to provide digital devices to families with children who are currently learning from home and struggle to access adequate devices. Already OACT have pledged six iPad mini's to local schools as part of the initiative.
How can you help?
- Contact Oldham Athletic Community Trust and arrange for a suitable time and date to donate your unsused laptop/device. Devices must be accompanied with a charger.
- Project partners Remedian will then reset all devices, ensuring any personal data remaining on the device will not be shared. The devices will then be presented to local schools to assist with the home learning.
Martin Vose, OACT Head of Community, added: "Digital devices is the latest of our Covid-19 specific initiatives as we continue to support those in need during this ongoing pandemic.
"We are asking for the support of those within our local community to ensure that we help as many families as possible, we have already pledged a small amount of devices however I am confident that together we can do much more. Whilst we all hope that children can return to school soon we hope that by providing these devices we can help families in a long-term capacity.
"I am delighted to be working alongside Dave and the team at Remedian with this initiative, given the technological aspect it made perfect sense to partner with such a trusted and proven IT specialist."
For further information on Digital Devices, or to donate your device, please email Martin.Vose@OACT.org.uk
Please note, that once donated, any devices cannot then be returned as they will be swiftly distributed to families in need.
