A SECOND CHANCE FOR YOUR COMPUTER AND PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES
Donate your devices today!
Secure data destruction
Data destruction takes place at our secured London premises. We issue certification giving you complete peace of mind that your data has been irretrievably erased.
Whether you have one or one thousand devices we want to hear from you!
We are always in need of laptops, desktops and tablets up to 8 years old; it doesn't matter what condition they are in. For donations of 10+ devices we offer a free collection service. For smaller donations we will attempt to arrange collection if possible else we'll let you know your nearest drop-off point. By donating your old devices to us will you be stopping them going to landfill and providing meaningful training and employment opportunities for people with learning difficulties and SEMH (social, emotional, and mental health) needs.
2econd Chance C.I.C. is a computer recycling not-for-profit organisation offering a variety of services including free computer removal, data destruction and affordable refurbished computers.
Graduates of the 2econd Chance training programme work under supervision to refurbish donated machines which are then sold at affordable prices. Money raised through the sale of refurbished machines is used to fund future training and employability programmes.
By donating, not only will you be stopping them from going to landfill but you will be providing meaningful training and employment opportunities for people with learning difficulties and SEMH (social, emotional, and mental health) needs.
WHAT WE DO
2econd Chance offers adults living with social, emotional and mental health needs, physical or learning disabilities work-based training in the IT sector. Working in partnership with referral organisations across north London we provide a bespoke supported training programme designed to foster an increased sense of self-belief and confidence through the development of practical skills.
Supported by our team, adults will complete 40 to 60 hours of hands-on training matched to their ability, focused on the fundamentals of computer hardware and software management. By the end of the training programme adults will be able to refurbish an old computer, adding years onto its lifespan. These machines are then sold via 2econd Chance C.I.C. to fund the training programme.
On completion of the training adults will be encouraged to become volunteer ambassadors supporting other adults through the programme, signposted to additional training or mentored through searches for employment.
We have recently put in application for charity status to that we can continue to grow our training provision.
Help us to help others by donating your old computers to 2econd Chance.
"I am 37 years old and have learning disabilities and a deformed hand. I have found it extremely hard to get a job because of this. Now I have been given an amazing opportunity to work at 2econd Chance. It has given me a new sense of purpose and a chance to get on with my life. I feel more worthwhile. Finally, I am of use to society!”
