Individuals Who Want to Donate
With the closure of schools across the country, many school children are currently missing out on education because of a lack of access to technology. As a direct response to this, Computer Aid International has decided to offer free collection and data wiping to individuals who want to donate working laptops.
Computer Aid International is offering a solution to people who want to donate laptops to a good cause but aren’t able to drop them off or post them. The new remote data wiping service allows users to have all data on their device destroyed from the comfort of their own home, ensuring that their personal data will not be at risk. A courier collection will then be arranged to pick up the laptop which will be taken to the Tier 1 warehouse and refurbished before it will be reused by a non-profit organization.
We are now accepting donations of laptops which meet the following criteria:
- i3, i5, i7 processor,
- 4GB RAM,
- 250GB hard drive
- Less than 7 years old
We have these criteria in place in order to ensure the laptop will be able to be used for a significant period by the beneficiary. Items which don’t meet this specification or which aren’t in a working condition will have a large negative impact on this project and on our work as a charitable organization, so please keep in mind that we’re offering this service for free to help during lockdown.
This service is currently free, please fill in this form and we will be in touch as soon as possible:
IT Disposal Service
We are still taking on new customers for our IT Disposal service and have resumed collections. Find out more here:
Applying for Computers
We are also taking new orders for organisations looking to get computers, but our stock levels are low with the increased demand we have seen over lockdown, so customers should expect a delay in our usual turnaround time. Please fill in this form and we will get back to you as soon as we are able.
If you're looking to support our work during this time, please consider donating or sharing our donation link to increase access to technology as a priority during this pandemic:
