Donating in Doncaster

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.

Doncaster

How it works:

Businesses, organisations and individuals should contact ltfkdoncaster@gmail.com to arrange their donation.

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 on all donated devices using licences and certification donated by data security expert Blancco in support of our campaign.

After making contact via email, donors can take devices to one of our drop-off points.

Natterhub is providing access to digital literacy and safety content.

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