Salford City Council's Device Donation Appeal

We believe that everyone should have access to a computer and social status should not stop that. 

As a council, we’re doing all we can to help and we’re now appealing to Salford businesses and individuals -  if you’re in a position to help, please consider doing so. Whether it’s a small financial donation, or if you could donate any unused laptops or tablets, we’d be enormously grateful and you’d be giving something back to your city and helping disadvantaged families and young people.

We can collect any hardware that you can spare, no matter the age. It will all be recycled, if not via upgrading and donating then it will be used in after-school clubs and training sessions in the community. So donate your old hardware today, we will collect it free of charge.

In order to protect your data we never keep the hard-drives that are inside your hardware. These are removed and passed back to you for safe keeping or disposing. This protects everyone.

If you would like to donate a device or hardware and you require it to be collected, please complete the following form:

Donate a device

If you have unused tech at home and you would like to donate to this scheme by bringing it to one of our gateway centres - first of all thank you! Your donation could truly change the life of a resident who is otherwise unable to access this technology. We just have a few pre-requisites for the devices before you drop them off: 

  • We ask that all devices are less than ten years old and/or Running Windows XP or higher
  • We ask that all devices are in full working condition
  • Please provide any/all power cables, rated appropriately for use in the UK

Apply for a device

We are working to ensure nobody is left behind in this digital age. Are you struggling to access online learning, complete your online applications, arrange GP appointments, or are struggling to stay connected in today's digital environment? If you have no digital devices at home this scheme could be for you. Please fill out the application form using the link below and someone from our team will be in contact to discuss your next steps.


Don't forget our teams are available at your local centres to help signpost you to some of our other great services and get you the help you need.
