About the project

The IT ReUse project is supported by a group of organisations in York who have shared goals in advancing the causes of digital inclusion, environmentalism and reuse. We accept donations of IT equipment from the general public and local businesses, and then through a network of community workers we distribute it to individuals who aren’t able to access essential services and risk getting left behind by the digital divide. We do not charge anything for our services.


"Thanks to devices from IT reuse I have had parents complete therapy, complete online learning, apply for (and get!) jobs, and thanks to having a laptop we could help a parent get onto bid for housing and teach her how to bid, from her first try she was offered a beautiful new home straight away and is moving in next week. The work you guys do is amazing and I'm always so grateful."

I think the service is fantastic and helps so many families in the local community to have access to computers, laptops and smart phones that wouldn’t be able to afford one under normal circumstances.

Tyler and the team are amazing, always very helpful and keep you up to date with the availability of stock. When you go and pick up the items ordered, it's always ready and with other information about courses etc."
