More than 400 Chromebooks and 130 mobile phones have been provided to a wide range of voluntary and charitable organisations across Scotland by National Records of Scotland (NRS) as part of the legacy of Scotland’s Census 2022.
NRS donated the Chromebooks and mobile phones, which were used by the census field staff last year. Nil by Mouth are one of the lucky recipients with a Chromebook being donated for use by volunteers.
Linda Sinclair, Director of Corporate Services at NRS, said:
“We are pleased to be able to donate this equipment to well deserving voluntary and charitable organisations, particularly at a time of rising costs for everyone. It is important that where we can, we support the reuse of equipment for wider benefit and a more sustainable impact. We received a huge number of applications and I am sure all those organisations receiving the equipment will make good use of it.”
Nil by Mouth Director Dave Scott added:
“This is a very welcome boost for our work and our volunteers will be able to utilise the technology to support our work and help improve our digital presence. Hundreds of charities will benefit from this initiative and its a great idea from the National Records of Scotland.”
