Level Up Redhill Reigate Banstead is a project that provides refurbished laptops for children and young people who need them for home study.

The laptops are donated by the community and refurbished by volunteers.  They are distributed to children and young people via local schools and charities.

Level Up Redhill Reigate Banstead is a partnership project that is being delivered by Raven Housing Trust with support from VARB and Level Up Horley.  Reigate & Banstead Borough Council are helping with premises and Fidelity UK are providing volunteer support.

This project is supported by Pfizer Limited.  Their grant funding is covering the cost of new hard drives and other additional parts needed for refurbishment

Last but not least, there are many individual volunteers and laptop donators who are making this project possible.

Thank you!
