DO YOU OR YOUR COMPANY HAVE SPARE TECH?
We repurpose your unwanted laptops, desktops, tablets and smartphones, passing them on to asylum seekers and refugees to help them resolve their immigration status, pursue studies and start their lives in their new country. Solidaritech professionally wipe your old hard drives, installing freeware Operating Systems like Linux and Open Office applications to make a new, quicker and more usable machine.
We deal with companies of all sizes – as well as individuals – and are more than happy to provide solutions to suit your individual circumstances. Get in touch if you’d like to find out more.
HOW SOLIDARITECH WORKS
DONATE YOUR OLD TECHNOLOGY
You can either donate to the office, post it, or arrange for a pick up. We accept donations from business or individuals. If you’re a business with multiple donations we can also brand the machines with donations stickers or provide press releases and articles for your company communications. Find out more about donating here.
WE PROFESSIONALLY CLEAN YOUR DATA
Our professional technicians wipe your data from the machine safely and securely using cutting edge technology.
After we’re done we then issue you a certificate of disposal along with our thanks.
WE FIX ANY ISSUES
Once cleaned, our technicians assess your machine, install a new, free Operating System and fix any issues. These could be simple things like replacing a charger, replacing missing keys or fitting a new track pad.
WE ALLOCATE THE NEW MACHINE
We pass machines on to grateful recipients on a ‘greatest need’ basis via our partners at Asylum Seeker & Refugee organisations. Your machines go to those looking to continue/convert their studies or for professional qualifications.
CAN’T DONATE ANYTHING BUT WANT TO HELP?
We receive lots of machines in need of smaller repairs, new chargers or replacement hard drives, if you can make a donation towards these costs – or just want to help with the costs of people coming to pick their machines up from further afield – then you can donate to Solidaritech here.
WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT HOW WE DO IT?
We use completely free, open source technology to minimise costs and ensure that our donors receive the maximum bang for their buck. All of the data from your machines is securely wiped onsite, providing you with certified proof.
Each donation also comes complete with a personalised press release for your company newsletter, bulletin or newsroom and we even provide the branded laptop stickers so your company can wear their donation with pride.
HAVE AN IDEA? WANT TO VOLUNTEER?
Technology is a huge and ever growing field, it’s not just about hardware, it’s about skills too. As well as refurbishing hardware Solidaritech also provide training, language help and work experience for Refugees and Asylum Seekers, helping them gain access to the UK’s jobs market by gaining real, applied experience.
If you would like to offer training courses or want to speak to us about how you or your company can help we would love to hear from you.
