Stephen Perse Cambridge donates iPads to Cambs Youth Panel

Published on 19/02/24

Stephen Perse Cambridge has donated 40 iPads, cases and chargers to Cambs Youth Panel as part of an ongoing partnership of technological donations.

The Cambs Youth Panel is made up of young people from Cambridgeshire and meets virtually to discuss the key issues that influence the quality of life in the region that they feel need to be addressed. The panel will use the donated iPads from Stephen Perse Cambridge to widen access to technology in and around Cambridge.

Andrew Brett, Director of IT and Systems Development at Stephen Perse Cambridge, said: "We are delighted to be able to make another donation of iPads to Cambs Youth Panel. Phil and his team do some fantastic work providing devices to young people in our local community that need them the most, and we are very pleased to be able to help with that.”

The pandemic revealed the true extent of digital inequality in and around Cambridgeshire. Cambs Youth Panel believes that every child and young person requires a computer, especially to complete their studies on the required learning platforms.

Phil Priestley, Creator of Cambs Youth Panel, added: “Stephen Perse Cambridge has always been a huge supporter of ours and they have previously donated iMac and iPad devices that we have allocated to children and young people who otherwise would not have access to this technology. We’re grateful to everyone at Stephen Perse Cambridge because together we are tackling digital inequality and boosting the chances of young people in Cambridge.”
