Step 3: Are you 18 or over?
Most of the applications for computers we receive are for members of the public to use.
Before we can proceed to take the application, please indicate the situation you are applying for.
We can only accept applications made by an adult 18 or over in age.
Are you aged 18 or more, making this application for a computer for yourself?
(ie. Will the laptop(s) will be used in your offices by your own staff?)
Please choose a button to answer, thanks.
We cannot accept applications from under 18 age.
We can only accept applications from adults, or recognised organisations.
We certainly give out computers to eligible under 18s, but the application process can only be done by someone 18 or over.
If you are under 18 and want to apply for a laptop, either a parent/guardian, or better still, a recognised organisation, like a social worker or school, can make the application on your behalf.
