Digital inclusion scheme

We know that studying, looking for work and taking up employment training opportunities during lockdown is especially difficult when you don’t have access to the internet or the technology you need. To help overcome this, we’re launching a fund to provide our residents with IT equipment and help them get online. If you’re over 18 and are finding that your course of study, training or job search is becoming more difficult in lockdown because you do not have a suitable digital device, we encourage you to apply.

The Digital inclusion scheme provides Chromebooks, and Data SIMs with 8GB of internet per month for up to six months.
 
Who is eligible?

Origin Housing residents who are:
  • aged 18+
  • recieving  Universal Credit, Employment Support Allowance or have a household income of £25,000 or less
  • enrolled on or have been accepted on an educational or employment training course
  • unemployed and actively seeking work
 
We cannot promise digital equipment for all applicants. We will be issuing equipment based on a full assessment of personal needs and depending on the items available.
 
How to apply:
