Laptop loans

Borrow a free laptop and internet dongle to access the internet from home.

Laptop Loans is a scheme to lend a laptop and an internet dongle to anyone without access to a computer or the internet.

About Laptop Loans

The scheme offers a free laptop and 4G dongle loan for an initial week, although you can extend this, subject to demand and terms and conditions.

You can connect to the internet by plugging the dongle into the laptop, so you’ll be able to connect to the internet without broadband.

The scheme will enable you to complete tasks such as job seeking, benefit applications, schoolwork and booking GP or vaccination appointments.
