DELAYS TO REPAIRS: We’ve completed many of the outstanding repairs logged with us prior to lockdown and are working hard to clear the remaining backlog. However we are experiencing some shortages in supplies, difficulties recruiting trade staff, and higher than normal levels of sickness absence. Please bear with us – we are completing repairs as quickly as we can. Thank you for your patience. For our latest service information, see our Coronavirus webpage

Tablet and laptop loan scheme

Cottsway customers without online access can benefit from our tablet and laptop loan scheme.

As part of this free scheme we can lend either:

  • A Lenovo tablet; or
  • An Asus laptop with Windows 10

Both come with a:

  • Charger
  • Huawei Wifi dongle with £15 credit (if you do not have internet access at home)

These can be used to:

  • Access our online services
  • Build digital skills
  • Keep in touch with friends and family


We also provide free training for customers who are not very confident about using the tablet or laptop, including either:

  • Group sessions - six-week digital training courses ranging from very basic to more advanced employment-ready sessions
  • Home tuition - tailored to each individual

We may also be able to assist with travel costs to help with attending the group sessions.
