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 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 charity 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.)
