DEVICE DONATION SCHEME

Logos.png

2econd Chance is a not-for-profit computer recycling company committed to bridging the digital divide by offering low-cost affordable technology through our partner organisations. We strive to donate 1 in 4 of every device we refurbish back into the community. In 2023 we donated in excess of 300 devices in our local area thanks to funding from Barnet Together and North London Waste Authority.

Based on the increased demand for refurbished devices, our new scheme offers community and voluntary groups access to low-cost affordable technology.

Organisations within the London Borough of Barnet

Working closely with Barnet Council, we are delighted to support their work promoting digital inclusion. Digital Inclusion is having the ability to use digital devices, such as tablets, laptops, and smartphones to access the internet.

 

There are several barriers that can affect digital inclusion such as:

  • Affordability – the means to connect to the internet – broadband and data.

  • Skills – having the skills and knowledge to use online services.

  • Confidence – being confident to use tech and navigate the internet independently.

  • Motivation – understanding why the internet is relevant and important in our day-to-day lives.

"Receiving a computer has been beneficial for me to stay more connected with the digital world."
