BESA Connect

BESA Connect is a scheme helping those who don't have the digital equipment at home to assist them in completing their training or apprenticeship.

What most of us have realised during the pandemic is how much we rely on technology. Whether it be for those endless Teams calls for work, online lessons as part of home schooling the kids, a family Zoom to keep in touch with loved ones or simply a binge watch of a boxset!

But what happens if you don't have WIFI? What if you don't have a laptop, tablet, PC or smartphone? Working or learning from home becomes a lot harder or impossible.

Here at BESA we have recognised that a lot of apprentices and learners within the industry, simply don't have the digital equipment or setup at home to help them continue with their apprenticeship learning and studies during lockdown.

That is why we have set up BESA Connect...  


WHAT IS BESA connect? 

A scheme where used or unwanted laptops and tablets can be donated to us and we will give them to learners and apprentices to continue their studies from home. 

We are delighted to be working with Softcat, who will refurbish the used laptops and tablets including deleting any previous data and supply the original owner with a Certificate of Destruction as proof.


how to donate your laptop or tablet

You will need to post your equipment directly to:

BESA Connect
Old Mansion House
CA10 2BX

Please include a note of your name, company and contact details so we can acknowledge receipt, include you in future promotion and let you know the story behind who receives your kit. 


i don't have digtial equipment but would still like to help!

Don't worry, you can still help by donating money to our BESA Connect GoFundMe page here. Your donations will be spent on buying laptops, tablets and Internet dongles for those learners or apprentices who currently can't continue their studies during lockdown.
