Donate IT Oldham Aims to help our most vulnerable residents get online by providing refurbished devices such as used laptops, smartphones, and tablets that businesses and members of the public no longer need.

When surveyed almost 40% of Oldham residents said they, or someone they lived with, experienced some form of difficulty getting online because they lack suitable digital devices and internet connections at home.

Donate IT Oldham is committed to reducing this figure and helping as many residents as possible.

We need your support

Please get involved and donate any unused or unwanted devices at any of Oldham Council’s libraries. We will then refurbish them and make sure they find a new home with someone across the borough who really needs it.

Back up any data before you drop it off and do a factory reset. We’ll do the rest. Anything we can’t refurbish will be recycled.

Items we can accept include:

  • Laptops (Windows and Mac)
  • Desktops (Windows and Mac)
  • Tablets (Android & iOS)
  • Smartphones (Android & iOS)
  • We also accept old-style mobile phones and game consoles such as Xbox and PlayStation
