At a time when young people need to study at home during COVID-19, Ulster University in partnership with generous partners, Ulster Community Investment Trust and Santander Universities, has raised funds to support community groups and schools in Derry~Londonderry.

On recognising that not all young people have the access to the technology they urgently need, Ulster University and partners has collaborated with local community groups to address the problem.

Ulster University’s civic mission has been put into action at other campuses too. At the Coleraine campus, the School of Education has helped primary schools in the Causeway Coast and Glens Area. In Belfast, Ulster University (via the Santander Universities Fund) and the National Lottery supported the Belfast Charitable Trust to fund laptops and WiFi access to 225 students across five secondary schools.
