Community Computers Scheme

Unfortunately, we do not have any recycled laptops current available, and therefore we will not be able to run this scheme in 2019. Should this change, we will send out a newsletter via Keep Me Posted (KMP). Register to KMP to receive local information. You can find us under the Localities section.

Changing Places project - funding opportunity

Applications are now open for public buildings across Warwickshire to apply for funding towards the installation of Changing Places facilities.

Standard accessible toilets meet the needs of some disabled people but not all; Changing Places toilets are designed to meet additional needs and ensure the facilities are fit for purpose for everybody with additional features and space.

The grant, funded by Warwickshire County Council, is open to public and private sector organisations who are responsible for publicly accessible buildings where a Changing Places toilet could be provided. The funding provided is for the provision and installation of approved equipment only.

Applications for funding are open until Monday 9 September 2019 and each application will be considered as it is submitted.

Visit CSW - JETS for more information on this funding opportunity and the application. You will need to register and create a login.
