Demand for back to school devices at an all time high

From Afternoons, 1:15 pm on 29 January 2024

Charities working to help communities access technology say a number of people are being left behind because they can't afford devices they need.

Local charity Recycle a Device sources pre-loved laptops, teaches high school students how to refurbish them and gets those devices into the community for people in need.

Bronwyn Scott is program manager at Recycle a Device.

She says Recycle a Device has received requests for over a thousand laptops this week alone - and is struggling to keep up with demand.

She talks to Jesse about what they do and how people can help.
