What we do

We accept donations from companies and individuals of devices that are in good working condition and we distribute these to schools, community groups and individuals who need them.

  • It is important to note that we do not refurbish devices so we can only accept devices that are no older than 2010 and in good working condition -

    • The device turn ons and off and starts up okay

    • All basic functions e.g. connecting to wifi, loading apps work

    • All keys on the keyboard and tracking pad must work

    • The device comes with original charger

    • Ensure your data is deleted (info on how here)

  • Devices we accept include: laptops, tablets and smart phones

  • If you have a device that does not meet the above criteria, it can still be refurbished or recycled. There are some great places out there that do this, for example Mer-IT.

  • Devices donated by corporations will either be agreed to be wiped of all data by the donating organisation or by us, using Blancco.

Why we do it

COVID-19 has exacerbated existing inequalities in communities and created increased hardship for many.

 

With most resources moving online, financial institutions moving from highstreet to digital and schools closing due to virus outbreaks, 'digital poverty' is leading to people being isolated.

 

Access to the internet is a lifeline for so many, providing access to education, learning, food resources, financial support, social support or help into work. Families are without access to ongoing support with education and remote learning.

 

In the absence of government will to support those most marginalised in society, communities have been sustaining each other. We believe that if every organisation in the UK with surplus or unused electronic devices passed them on, that every family in the UK would be able to have access to a laptop. If you think your company could get  involved - please get in touch.

Our Mission

We want to ensure that socially conscious tech companies can distribute their unused devices to communities and families with no access to devices.

Our Vision

No person will go without access to learning from home or be without crucial resources that can often only be accessed online.
