COVID-19, has turned life upside down and inside out for everyone, including over 50 school children who have no access to the internet. For most, this might not be a problem but for these children, the tap of learning has been turned off. They have also lost contact with their friends and their social isolation is just getting harder.
Some of our children are from families who are struggling on low incomes, some are still new to this country and are learning English for the first time and falling further behind, simply because they cannot access education.
Lock down has prevented them from accessing the internet through school and the local libraries. As some children are heading back to school, the majority are not, this is why we need your help.
"I work across five schools, and some of the families are at such great need." A Family Support Worker, Barnet Schools.
"Our children feel cut off and lost, they are worried they will never catch up on work they have missed. It causes a lot of stress for our family." A Barnet Parent
With your help, we can switch their education back on by providing a Pay-As-You-Go dongles to 50 children that we have been contacted about.
With your help we can reconnect them with their friends and help to end the exclusion and isolation they re feeling.
With your help, we can change this.
Thank you from all the team at CommUNITY Barnet
