May 2023 - We are no longer taking laptop donations, or applications for free laptops.
Sadly, we have had to decide to wind down SCHol.Tech. As a result we can no longer accept laptop donations, or accept applications for a free laptop.
Thank you to everyone who made SCHol Tech a success from Jan 2021 to May 2023. Over 300 laptops delivered free to the local community.
We turn donated old & unloved laptops
into free computers to help
resolve the digital divide
HOW IT WORKS
Used laptops are donated
We take in Windows or Apple laptops.
Members of the public and companies across our area donate the machines.
We remove and then wipe the memory completely with a special machine.
Our volunteers refurbish the laptops
We insert a blank memory into the laptop and reinstall software from scratch, putting on the apps that most people need, like Teams, Browser & Word Processing.
We accept financial donations from the public to support this work
Local people requests laptops
We take requests from Families, Agencies, & Adults in Wellington, Taunton or Bridgwater areas of Somerset, to apply for a free laptop, where there are special circumstances that warrant us giving them a free machine.
Our volunteers deliver the laptops
One of our volunteers then deliver laptops to recipients on one of our scheduled delivery runs around the area.
