Durham County Council has partnered with Protech City to offer low-cost computer equipment to County Durham based registered charities under the Digital Durham Reboot scheme.
A quarter of Durham County Council owned desktops and laptops are replaced each year to ensure they are technically up to date and perform well. Some of these devices are suitable for reuse, and are being offered through this scheme.
The equipment starts at just £75 for a desktop and £105 for a laptop. Both come with genuine Microsoft Office 2010 Home & Business software and a Windows 10 operating system that includes anti-virus.
To be eligible you need to use the equipment to:
· Help residents get online by providing free internet access
· Provide support to residents to improve their skills – this could be digital skills
· Assist the charity to run more effectively
