A SocialBox.Biz post by Heather, February 12, 2023.

SocialBox.Biz has forged partnerships with numerous charity initiatives across the UK. One such is partnership is with C4WS Homeless Project. This Central London organisation offers comprehensive services to help homeless people get back on their feet, including English classes, legal assistance, help finding jobs, and housing assistance. 

Through our partnership with C4WS, we provide laptops which dramatically shape the lives of those in need. With a laptop in their possession, homeless people can more easily transition into career and employment opportunities. They can also communicate with others and enjoy entertainment. 

For example, one C4WS homeless client and his father recently benefited from a laptop donated by SocialBox.Biz. The laptop helped them with daily tasks, applying for various benefits, and pursuing education. 

Another homeless man who went to C4WS for help received a laptop via SocialBox.Biz. He’d previously had a laptop that stopped working, and with a new laptop, he was able to update his CV and continue pursuing jobs. 

Below is also a photo of M, who moved out of C4WS winter shelter this month into more permanent accommodation and was very happy to be gifted a laptop! He has given his consent for the photo to be used.

SocialBox.Biz is driving social change and making a real, palpable impact via partnerships with charities such as C4WS. But how do we get the laptops? 

All of our donated laptops are procured through collections of old no longer needed but still usable tech by us. We specifically reach out to companies and educational organisations that tend to generate a wealth of unwanted and outdated tech. Then, we accept their donated laptops and other items, wipe them clear of all data, and load them with open source software that can be used for a variety of everyday purposes.
