As the UK battles through its third national lockdown, Ofcom estimates that 9% of children in the UK (between 1.1 million and 1.8 million) do not have access to a laptop, desktop, or tablet at home.

It is devastating to hear about the families across the country who are fighting daily to homeschool their children without access to the basic equipment that is required.

We have to do something to help and we have to act now...

Set up by Chris Redmond (Managing Partner, RedHolt , Tim Roedel (CEO, Simply Commerce Simply Commerce) and Sean Anderson (CEO, Hoxo Media), Project 500 is a scheme that is designed to help provide some of the UK's most disadvantaged families with the laptops they desperately need.

We have spent time in January sourcing a laptop supplier and having conversations with the Head Teachers of the most impacted schools in the UK.

During February, our aim is for to engage our very own recruitment sector in order to supply 500 laptops to some of the families currently struggling. In order to do so, together we need to raise £80,000 in donations.

Between our businesses, we have donated £6,000 to the cause. We need your help to hit our target of £80,000/500 laptops.

There are approximately 28,000 recruitment agencies within the UK, and in coming together, we truly believe we can have a massive impact on the future of 100’s of children’s lives through Project 500.

For more information on why we have we chosen to do this, you can watch the videos on this page.
