2020 View: Budget Support

The 2014 Budget maintains government commitment to Computers in Homes, funding 1,500 families in the next year.

“We appreciate this on-going support from Government, which ensures that thousands more school children will get access to the internet and technology” said Laurence Millar, Chair of 2020.
