Leicester Connected

Leicester Connected is a new initiative run by Smart Cities to reduce the digital divide within our local communities.

We are offering the opportunity to loan a Chromebook (laptop) or tablet from our libraries for twelve weeks. As part of the loan, you can also engage in further digital skills training provided by Leicester’s Adult Skills and Learning Service.

To be eligible for the scheme you must:

  • be over eighteen
  • not have access to your own device

A referrals process is currently in place to help us identify eligible users.

Our current referral partners include:

  • Reaching People
  • Shama Womens’ Group
  • Leicester Ageing Together

If you would like to find out more information, become a referral partner or be referred on to the scheme yourself, please send us an email at smart@leicester.gov.uk.
