There remains to be a large need for computers and laptops for students, those shielding and many others in need. Local charities and community groups have responded to this. They are doing a great job at collecting donations, updating and fixing laptops and distributing them to those in need of a working device.
We’d like to collect information about these initiatives and curate a list on our website. With this, we hope to give the projects more visibility and encourage more people to donate their old devices or get involved fixing them. We are particularly looking for small or community initiatives - those that take donations from individuals!
For this, we need your help! Do you know of local initiatives that reuse computers and laptops? Is your Restart group or Repair Cafe even running such a project themselves?
Let us know!
These are the projects we’re aware of so far:
