What is Screen Share?

Screen Share is a social initiative which repurposes used laptops for young refugees in the UK. If it's a nice one, we wipe it, check it works and pass it on. If it needs some love, we ask one of our volunteer IT specialists to make it beautiful again. We pass it to young refugees who are receiving educational support.

So you want to donate your laptop?

Thank you so much! We accept laptops which: 

  • Switch on 

  • Have built-in cameras 

  • Are no more than 8 years old

Yes please!.png

Unfortunately, at this stage, we don't accept laptops which:

  • Don't switch on 

  • Couldn't fit into a medium sized backpack

  • Have a sticker by the trackpad which say 'Celeron' or 'Pentium'

We have these restrictions becase we want young refugees to know they are infinitely valuable - they deserve a good piece of tech like any other kid. Our funding situation also means we have to invest strategically in laptops which are going to last for a good few years. 

These other organisations may be able to take your laptop and make it useful for someone!
