Fantastic support from Local Business

The level-up Reigate & Banstead project has received some fantastic support from local businesses.


The project is led by Raven Housing Trust with support from VARB and other community organisations and volunteers.  Over 850 laptops have now been refurbished and donated to children via schools (300 from Horley and 550 from the rest of R&B). 


Although the school lockdowns have lifted, the issue of digital exclusion is ongoing, so the project will continue throughout 2021.  We are still looking for donations of laptops.  


If you work for a business that has spare laptops you'd like to donate, please get in touch ” 


All laptops are securely wiped or have their hard drive replaced before being refurbished and passed on via schools.  If a business is concerned about any data issues, we would be happy to talk to them about our data security processes.

Welcome Back Fund

Reigate & Banstead Borough Council has been awarded £132,264 from the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government as part of their £56 million Welcome Back Fund.


The Funding will help councils prepare for the safe return of shoppers and tourists and can be used to:

  • boost the look and feel of their high streets by investing in street planting, parks, green spaces and seating areas to make high streets as beautiful and welcoming as possible.
  • Run publicity campaigns and prepare to hold events like street markets and festivals to support local businesses.
  • Install signage and floor markings to encourage social distancing and safety.
  • Improve high streets and town centres by planting flowers or removing graffiti.

Keep an eye on our website and social media channels to see how our town centres will benefit from this allocation.
