Cheshire East Council > Community Zone > Loan and Learn Computer Scheme
 

The Loan and Learn scheme currently provide IT support for about 100 individuals across South Cheshire with weekly support sessions

One aspect of the project is to re-cycle redundant IT equipment and then loan the machines to people who cannot afford to buy new equipment,  Users of this service include young people, new businesses, pensioners, families needing some help, and just about anyone else wanting to try out IT.

The scheme needs about 5-10 PCs a week to meet current demand and they have received equipment from local businesses and schools.  Recent donations have come from Sir William Stannier and Gainsborough Schools as well as PCL ltd and Wulvern Housing.  The service is popular with schools and businesses because data is destroyed on hard drives before installing new software and operating systems.
