We are a community initiative, and are responding to what we’ve seen is a clear and prevalent need across the city, the county and the country. If you would like to help then we would love to hear from you.
Here are a few ways in which you can be involved:
We understand that this is a tough time for everyone, and over the course of 2020 businesses have been placed under massive amounts of strain, but it’s in tough times that we come together and, as a business, this is a chance for you to make a real difference to the lives of young people and to invest in our future.
Our ask to business is two fold, if you can spare any of your business machines for donation then that would be great. But we understand that you require certainty around what happens to your kit. Our Data Wiping page gives you plenty of ways you can wipe the data from your machines yourself, but if you require certificates to prove data erasure then a service like Blancco is great, and they even offer a free trial.
If your business doesn’t have any spare, donate-able kit then you can always ask your staff members whether they do. We treat all of the donations the same, wiping them at the earliest possible point, but our Data Wiping page shows plenty of free and easy ways in which the machines can be wiped of your data prior to donating them to us.
If you are an individual and would still like to help, you might want to consider donating your spare laptops. You might even want to collect machines on our behalf and wipe them for us. In this case we would still wipe them again at our end – as this is a promise to all donors.
Also, if you are an IT person this would be doubly helpful. Get in touch with us and we’ll see what we can do to help you get started to help digitally excluded young people in Leeds.
