Donating Equipment

Donating a computer is an opportunity for companies and individuals to help the disadvantaged within their community to lead a more independent, fulfilling and productive life.

Donated Laptops in use at The Springfield Project, Birmingham

We accept donations of working desktop computers and laptops but our aim is to match the needs of the beneficiaries against offered donations and so some minimal technical specifications must be met for the actual donation to be accepted.

  • Equipment should be less than 6 years old
  • Flat screen monitors only
  • Hardware requiring repair cannot be accepted

We urgently need donations of working laptops.

If you have equipment that you would like to donate please call us on 0121 663 0335 or email admin@recom.org.uk

Here are some of the projects which have benefited in the past year.

It has been created to provide excellent resources and opportunities for people to connect, build communities and lead a more fulfilling and healthy life. The computers will be used to pass on IT Skills such as web development, excel, word, marketing and using social media.
