SocialBox.Biz Urges Businesses and Organisations to Donate Old Laptops for Refugee Week to Benefit Homeless, Refugees, and Disadvantaged People

Last Updated on: 22nd November 2023, 07:29 pm

As Refugee Week approaches, SocialBox.Biz, a UK-based social enterprise, is committed to improving the lives of refugees by providing them with access to laptops. The organisation works to bridge the digital divide by providing rehomed laptops and other tech devices to organisations and individuals who work with refugees, homeless people, and older people who can not afford any kind of computer.

Carolyn Williams, Social Impact Consultant at SocialBox.Biz, said: “We are the only community interest company re-homing old but usable tech from companies, universities, and other large organisations and placing them in the hands of the disadvantaged in local UK communities in this way. We provide on-site data removal service and load the technology with open source software, solving common problems for IT teams and social impact problems for our clients. We’ve done a lot, but we will do a lot more with the help of more partners.”

SocialBox.Biz founder and Chairman, Peter Paduh, added: “As we mark Refugee Week, it’s important to remember that refugees are people just like us who have been forced to flee their homes due to conflict or persecution. By donating your old no longer needed, yet still usable laptops and other tech, you can help to provide a lifeline for refugees and other disadvantaged people who are trying to rebuild their lives.”

The organisation has seen success stories from those who have benefited from the initiative. One former child refugee said: “My life changed when I was donated an old computer to support my education and transition into British society.”

The IT solutions and services provided by SocialBox.Biz have been highly beneficial, both to companies looking to increase their ‘ESG’ scores and to those in need. To learn more, visit
