Donate Your Disused Things Through Our Charity Partners

We are often asked by members of the public whether we can arrange to collect their items as well.  Unfortunately the costs of doing so often prevents us. However, we do  have a number of charities and other partners that have kindly provided collection points for us. Please ensure that disused but still working and reusable laptop computers , mobile phones and games consoles are labelled ‘SocialBox’ and placed into our SocialBox that you will find with our partner.

(Please note that for our charitable digital inclusion programme we are only able accept equipment of minimum Dual-Core equivalent age and spec at partner drop off locations.)

For any enquirers from members of public who are in need of support with access to a computer

  • please contact our participating charity partners found under our digital inclusion page initiative link. Our service is to supply the partnering charities who already have processes in place to assist those in need including accommodation services and other support.
