Computer Benefits

Focussing on the Furness Peninsula, Computer Benefits aims to deliver fully refurbished computer systems to families or individuals claiming any means tested benefit.

The long term aims of the project are to improve access to Computers in homes where there may be financial barriers. The scheme hopes to help improve these individuals IT skills and give them better chances in the future.

Just a few years ago, a child having access to a home computer had an advantage over those who did not. Today those children without access to their own PC may actually be at a disadvantage.

Computer Benefits aims to improve the chances of people without the means to buy their own PC by providing an ‘as new’ computer system including Software, installation, warranty and support, all for a very low rental fee.
