Read the letter from your funding body very carefully as this will tell you what you need to do next.

Order your specialist equipment

You will be asked to order the equipment. You will need to contact the supplier named on the letter you have received, you will be asked to send them a copy of the letter. The supplier will discuss any upgrades you may want and discuss how you will make the £200 contribution if you have been recommended a new computer. All recommendations can be found within the assessment of needs report.

If you have been provided with a new computer it will be insured and have a maintenance contract with the supplier. Please check your assessment of needs report to see if additional insurance and maintenance is required.
