London Laptop Donation Drive

About 9% of children in the UK – up to 1.8 million – do not have access to a laptop, desktop or tablet at home. Let's help these kids in London.

Find a local organisation you can donate a laptop to, or contribute your skills or cash.

This page can help you find out where to help across London, and in the following boroughs: Hammersmith and Fulham, Islington, Kensington and Chelsea, Lambeth, Lewisham, Merton and Kingston, Tower Hamlets, Wandsworth, Westminster.

And to supercharge local efforts at a community level, The Restart Project is mobilising its London repair volunteers to help. Find out more

Outside London?
We’re also building a list of projects across the UK that are collecting devices to give to local people in need.
Volunteer working on a donated laptop
The response has been great but there are currently still thousands of children in Lewisham doing their homework on smartphones. We desperately need donated laptops.
