They are appealing to businesses to contribute their old but still usable laptop computers so that they can be reused by people who have experienced homelessness.

The goal is to collect 1,000 laptops by 2020, which will be distributed by homelessness charity Thames Reach to the people using its services. In order to apply for jobs, reconnect with family and friends, and have an online presence today they people need access to laptops.

The initiative hopes to collect 1,000 laptops by 2020, and these will be distributed by homelessness charity Thames Reach. People using its services receive assistance getting their lives back on track, applying for jobs, and communicating with family and friends.

The initiative has already donated 150 refurbished laptops to Thames Reach.

SocialBox.Biz’s Peter Paduh said: “It’s about bettering our communities and societies by taking the laptops some view as no longer needed and giving them to the people who need them the most.”

Jeremy Swain, Chief Executive of Thames Reach, said: “These laptops will give the homeless and marginalised people who receive them the opportunity to communicate with friends and relatives, develop new interests, and access advice to improve their skills and employment prospects.”
