Donating in Chesterfield

Laptops for Kids is a charitable organisation that facilitates the donation, secure erasure and distribution of used digital devices, enabling children from disadvantaged backgrounds to have access to the technology they need to participate in remote learning.

Chesterfield

How it works:

Businesses, organisations and individuals should complete our donations form to advise of any devices that they would like to donate to the campaign. 

We will accept laptops, tablets, desktops and chargers which meet the minimum specifications for use in schools.

Laptops for Kids will run certified secure erasure using Blancco on all donated devices.

Natterhub is providing access to digital literacy and safety content.

We are also raising funds to support the campaign in Chesterfield via our gofundme page.
