The 2017 Coalition Government Agreement stated that Government funding for Computers in Homes – which ceased in June – will be restored. We are waiting to discuss this with the new Government. Meanwhile we continue to support the families from 2016/17 for their first 12 months online.
Because of this gap in funding, in some regions we no longer have a regional coordinator, and our national team are supporting those families.
The stories and statistics in the Computers in Homes Annual Report 2016/17 shows why the programme is so important – and successful – in helping New Zealand families get full benefit of being online.
