City faithful support local students

Thanks to the generous donations of City fans, the Robins Foundation’s ‘Laptops for Learners’ project has enabled disadvantaged students across Bristol to engage with remote learning.

The months of lockdown have had a profound impact on education. With schools being forced to close their doors as a result of lockdown young people across the country are continuing their education’s from home.

However, for many young people, accessing online education is not possible due to lack of access to the required technology. An estimated one in ten households in the UK do not having access to a laptop or tablet device at home, making continuing their education from home an impossibility.

To combat this, City’s official charity called upon City supporters to help young people continue their educations by donating laptop and tablet devices for the Robins Foundation to distribute to disadvantaged young people across Bristol, and the response has been incredible.

Thanks to the generosity of both individuals and businesses across the city, the Robins Foundation have been able to provide devices to many young people who would otherwise have been unable to access remote learning.

After an incredible response, the Foundation are now bringing the project to a close.

Supporting those in need

The 'Laptops for Learners' project is part of a wider effort carried out by the Robins Foundation to support those most in need in Bristol.

In partnership with FareShare South West, City’s official charity are continuing to make weekly deliveries of food supplies to vulnerable families across Bristol, the Foundation’s education department has delivered more than 30 laptops to disadvantaged students to enable them to access online learning, and staff from cities official charity continue to make phone calls each week to check in with individuals at risk of becoming socially isolated.
