Power to Connect — Combatting Digital Poverty During COVID-19 in Wandsworth

Power to Connect was set up as a direct response to the COVID-19 crisis. In partnership, Wandsworth Council and Battersea Power Station launched the Power to Connect initiative with a two-pronged approach to tackle digital poverty through data vouchers and laptops. Their campaign to encourage donations of unused, working laptops, tablets, and computers was launched on April 19, 2020.
