Dixons Carphone pledges £1m to support digital learning

Dixons Carphone is to give £1m to support disadvantaged pupils, parents and teachers as part of a longer-term commitment to help end digital poverty in the UK.

Working with The Learning Foundation the company will donate to the charity’s Digital Access For All (DAFA) programme to support digital learning. The money will also equip 1,000 teachers and teaching assistants with technology and help deliver home schooling to 30,000 disadvantaged pupils during the pandemic and beyond. Digital Access For All founding partners include Nominet, Intel, Microsoft, BT and Lloyds Bank.

The retailer will also become one of three founding partners in the Digital Poverty Alliance (DPA), a group of organisations brought together by DAFA and the Institution of Engineering and Technology to tackle digital poverty in the UK, particularly for disadvantaged children.
