MK Community Foundation

Published: 12 March 2021

MK Community Foundation are working in partnership with Its What’s Next IT to refurbish donated old, used, or surplus laptops to distribute to students under the age of 18 living in Milton Keynes.

We are asking small businesses and local people to get involved by donating their devices so we can make sure best use is made of them.

It was brought to our attention through our Vital Signs 2020 research that 17.7 % children living in Milton Keynes are living in poverty. There are also many people experiencing digital poverty.

Covid-19 has highlighted this even more.

This project will help toward alleviating this, not only during covid-19 restrictions but more long-term.

We would appreciate it if you would share information regarding this programme and help support us to generate donations and reach students that would benefit from one of these laptops
