About Becta

Becta leads the national drive to inspire and lead the effective and innovative use of technology throughout learning.


The Home Access programme

The Home Access programme has been a runaway success and is now closed.

The programme has been incredibly successful, with more than 250,000 families now benefitting from increased access to technology at home to improve learning. More than 8,000 children with profound disabilities, special educational needs or who face challenges accessing computers and the internet are also reaping the benefits of bespoke technology to meet their individual needs, which has enabled them to be brought not only online, but in line with their peers.

The Home Access programme operated within a limited budget and timeframe. Those who have unfortunately missed out may be able to get help elsewhere. In the first instance they should approach their local authority for information on other similar schemes running in their area.
