Young people who benefit from this program will get free Sky Broadband for up to 18 months, a technology bundle that will include a laptop, rucksack, software, and a digital active pen. They will also get access to special events that focus on skills, well-being, and careers.
Sky is today announcing the roll-out of its Sky Up Tech Grants initiative with an investment of £220,000 to provide young people with equipment and connections to get online.
The initiative is specifically targeted to help young people between 16 and 25 to live independently, after leaving the care system. It forms part of Sky’s
ambitious goal to tackle digital inequality and provide support to a quarter of a million digitally excluded people through a £10m fund.
Through its Sky Up Tech Grants, Sky aims to support thousands of young people leaving care by giving them individual grants that include a personal tech device pre-loaded with relevant software, an internet connection through Sky, and access to skills training.
