Funding for individuals

Digital Device

Salford Council are working with My Outsourced IT to collect and redistribute donated devices to local schools and low income families. We believe that everyone should have access to a computer and social status should not stop that. To find out more about My Outsourced IT’s green credentials visit green computing. You can also find out more about who and what they stand for over on their  Our Journey page.

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.
