Donate a laptop
All of the families were overwhelmed at your generosity and a fair few tears were shed. You have made a massive difference to children who were trying so hard to keep up with their work and keep connected with their teachers and classmates.
Help us reduce inequalities and fight digital poverty across Merton, Wandsworth and Kingston. We have already delivered over 2,000 devices thanks to many generous donations. However, demand is still high and our work is not done!
An estimated 700,000 young people do not have access to the internet on a computer at home in the UK. This is a real concern as children with access to technology at home tend to do better in school exams and gain valuable skills.
Even more worryingly, as teachers and parents navigate a safe return to school, local and nationwide lockdowns, as well as individual household isolation are likely to continue to disrupt the education of many and our aim is not to leave any child behind.
KKC (Keep Kids Connected) is inspirational and exactly what the community needs now. If you have a spare laptop hanging around please let them have it, it could change a child’s life.

The process after donating a laptop
We collect your laptop.
Our IT specialists securely erase your hard disk data. The data is unrecoverable using industry standards such as DoD Short and Sata Secure Erase. The device is refurbished and we install Chrome OS.
One of our drivers delivers directly to a local school. The school then passes it on to a child who needs the device.
