Digital Inclusion Scheme

The Digital Inclusion Scheme collects unwanted computers and redistributes them back into the Bristol community. It is a Bristol City Council backed project to promote digital inclusion as part of the One City approach.

By reusing and redistributing working IT equipment and providing tech support we hope to increase access to education, training and employment to reduce digital poverty in Bristol. 

Digital poverty

Digital poverty is the limited access to the internet or a digital device. This can create difficulties in accessing online information and services. By pledging 20% of working desktop computers to charity we hope to improve digital inclusion.

If you’re a Bristol charity that needs desktop computers please enquire, we may be able to help.

How does the scheme work?

We work with Bristol businesses and the public to source unwanted working IT equipment through our Electrical Waste Removal Service.

Collect IT Equipment

We collect unwanted computers from businesses or receive donated computers from the Reuse Shop. The collection of working IT equipment is free of charge and helps to reduce the amount of E-waste entering landfill sites.
