County Supplies has continued to operate a near normal service for all customers throughout the pandemic, as well as providing our colleagues across the Council with a wide range of Covid response support. This included assisting Children’s Services deliver a Government initiative.
The DFE announced in April 2020 that they would be providing laptops, tablets and dongles to disadvantaged children and young adults to assist them with home learning. Children’s Services co-ordinated the ordering of the equipment for schools and approached County Supplies to assist in the distribution. County Supplies was able to use their knowledge and expertise to deliver over 4,000 laptops and 2,000 dongles within 3 weeks to schools and homes across the County, helping to ensure children’s and young adults’ education continued throughout the pandemic.
