The issue of digital exclusion has been become more apparent throughout the pandemic, with Hammersmith and Fulham Council alone identifying 1,500 children within their borough in need of a laptop or internet access. As one of a number commitments to support and enable digital inclusion in the communities in which we work, BPTW recently donated £5k to Tech4Kids, a fantastic initiative between Hammersmith and Fulham Council and Ready Tech Go, which aims to supply laptops and other devices as well as data to help children in the borough catch up on missed learning and gain vital digital skills. We are delighted to support this initiative and are pleased to see several of the first children who have received devices from the campaign.

The donation continues our social value work in the borough which is being delivered as part of our work on Hartopp and Lannoy, a scheme which both our architecture and planning consultancy team are appointed on. The development will deliver 135 homes designed to Passivhaus standards which will regenerate part of the existing Aintree Estate.
