DigiReady @ North West is an initiative by the North West Community Development Council (CDC), to provide holistic support to vulnerable residents in the following aspects of digital readiness: refurbished devices and accessories, subsidised broadband, and troubleshooting faulty digital devices.
1. Support on Digital Devices
Low-income students, seniors and families may request for refurbished devices, provided completely free-of-charge, through community partners (e.g. Community Clubs and Social Service Agencies).
Contribute to the programme!
With Covid-19, there is an increasing need to go digital yet some families are unable to afford IT equipment to learn and work safely in their homes, or to keep in touch with their loved ones.
Donate your preloved IT equipment to be professionally refurbished and given to students and vulnerable families that do not have digital access during this period of Home-Based Learning and Work from Home.
What items can you contribute?
2. Subsidised broadband
- Mobile phones and tablets
- Keyboard and mouse
- Laptop bag
DigiReady @ North West further subsidises broadband access for beneficiaries under IMDA's Home Access Scheme, by providing additional subsidies of up to $10 per month, for a period of two years.
