Laptops for the Homeless, Refugees, and the Elderly in SocialBox.Biz Community Interest Company’s Isolation Initiative and SocialBox.Biz Community Interest Company’s Refugee and Homeless Scholarship Campaign does not replace not a regular recycling contract. We ask any organization that may be replacing materials to contact us first so that we can determine if there are any usable items to reuse before scrap metal recycling takes place. This way we can keep the process as sustainable as possible. Apart from old laptops that are no longer needed but still usable, we collect many other tech items and now include some FURNITURE items for our donation and fundraising.

About the SocialBox.Biz guide to freeing old but still useful laptops from offices to those who need them most:
Many people are numerically excluded, especially the homeless. SocialBox.Biz has partnered with a number of charities that work with the homeless and vulnerable to get laptops into the hands of those who need them most.
In its new guide, SocialBox.Biz explains how offices (including board offices, schools, universities and colleges) can get involved in this initiative while also finding a purpose for their laptops that are no longer needed. but still working. Throwing away laptops contributes to emissions factors, and the partnership with The Laptops for the Homeless Initiative enables businesses and organizations to give back to their communities while reducing emissions.
SocialBox.Biz has also produced a short video guide for boards, schools, universities and colleges to help them solve their social obligation and social value issues around their old technology:

Working with The Laptops for the Homeless Initiative is even better than recycling, says the team at SocialBox.Biz, as the technology can be used locally in London and the UK.
The SocialBox.Biz team provides the onsite data scanning service using security aligned software. Then the team installs open source software on the laptops to ensure that users get the most out of their technology. For example, SocialBox.Biz installs operating systems like Linux on laptops, including older but still working Macbooks and IMacs. The use of such open source systems ensures that the costs remain low. This ensures that charities have a viable option to help their clients.
SocialBox.Biz encourages offices around the world to be actors at a time of critical need for many members of their local communities. You can find more information about donating to The Laptops for the Homeless Initiative at https://www.socialbox.biz/.
From November 2021 we are launching our new scholarship program for refugees and homeless people in the UK. SocialBox.Biz plans to provide grants to help refugees pay for tuition, fees and continuing education expenses. We will identify those who need it most and pay for their education in collaboration with a charity for the homeless. These funds will give refugees and homeless people in the UK the opportunity to get back on their feet and integrate into UK society. We are looking for schools, colleges, universities, local councils and other great organizations to help us collect old but still usable technology. The founder of SocialBox.Biz being a former refugee child, we have first-hand experience of the challenges one faces when integrating into a new society. With the right resources, we can all make a difference in someone’s life.
SocialBox.Biz is a community interest business (CIC) that enhances the local community by providing innovative technological solutions.
