Free SIM cards and mobile data

We're working with Good Things Foundation to distribute free SIM cards and mobile data to local people facing digital exclusion through not being able to afford sim cards and mobile data. 

The National Databank scheme is supported by UK mobile networks Vodafone, O2 and Three, and offers vital connections for anyone cut off from the basic daily activities most people take for granted, like contacting loved ones, accessing job interviews, finding essential health or other information online, and digitised public services. 

If you're a Cheshire East resident and meet the eligibility criteria, you can register your interest.


Together with The Reading Agency and the Science Museums Group, we're excited to introduce Gadgeteers, the Summer Reading Challenge 2022, which is now running in libraries until 10 September. It's open to all children and free of charge.

Whatever your children's talents or interests are, whether they love baking, music, sport or digital technology, they can join the Gadgeteers for the Summer Reading Challenge and earn a certificate and medal. They just need to read any six books of their choice (including e-books, e-audiobooks, comics or magazines) to help the Gadgeteers, whilst discovering the amazing creativity and scientific innovation in everyday objects.
