Low-cost laptops and PCs offered to charities 

Registered charities in County Durham are being offered low-cost laptops and PCs as part of a council-run recycling scheme.

The Digital Durham Reboot initiative sees IT equipment owned by the council refurbished and made available to registered charities in the area. As well as helping charities operate more efficiently, the scheme aims to support them in their work to help people get online and improve their skills. The is run by the council in association with Protech City, which securely removes all council data and licences before fully testing the equipment and installing Windows 10 and Microsoft Office software. Durham Community Association is one of a number of charities that have already purchased equipment through the scheme.
