Got an old laptop? Donate it to Social Box instead of eBaying it

Social enterprise wants 1,000 laptops to be distributed to people in homeless shelters. Instead of trying to flog your old laptop off on eBay or at a boot sale, Social Box would rather you sent it their way instead – the UK-based social enterprise is aiming to supply 1,000 people in hostels with refurbished devices. Increasingly, as services like Universal Credit head online, those in the 9 per cent of Britons who’ve never used the Internet stand to lose out.

As well as helping people develop IT skills, the idea is to give people access to support and services they need, as well as providing a communications lifeline with friends and family. Social Box[1] will check and refurbish all devices handed in before passing them on to London-based charity Thames Reach[2] for wider distribution. Speaking to The Inquirer[3], Peter Paduh, founder of SocialBox said: “It’s about bettering our communities and societies by taking the laptops some view as no longer needed and giving them to the people who need them the most.”

Jeremy Swain, CEO of Thames Reach added, “These laptops will give the homeless and marginalised people who receive them the opportunity to communicate with friends and relatives, develop new interests, and access advice to improve their skills and employment prospects.” If anyone you know is in need of a cheap refurbished PC or laptop for themselves or their family, they should in the first instance check out Go On UK[4], so see if there are any local support groups who can help. Failing that, you can pick up a cheap refurbed machine from places like Microdream[5] and Compu-Zone[6].

If you’re applying for Universal Credit (or know someone who is) and you/they need Internet access, you can get BT Basic[7], an ADSL service that’s cheaper than the usual rate and only available to people receiving benefits.
