Level Up Reigate & Banstead is a project that provides refurbished laptops for children and young people who need them for home study.
The laptops are donated by the community and refurbished by volunteers. They are distributed to children and young people via local schools and charities.
Level Up Reigate & Banstead is a partnership project that is being delivered by Raven Housing Trust with support from VARB and Level Up Horley (now included within Level Up Reigate & Banstead). Fidelity UK are providing volunteer support.
This project is supported by Pfizer Limited. Their grant funding is being put towards the cost of new hard drives and other additional parts needed for refurbishment
Last but not least, there are many individual volunteers and laptop donators who are making this project possible.
Do you have an unwanted laptop gathering dust?
We need over 500 second hand laptops or tablets in working order.
Your laptop must be running Windows 7, 8 or 10 and have at least one USB port. Please note we are no longer accepting phones or laptops with Windows XP or Vista.
All laptops will be securely wiped or have hard discs removed and destroyed. They are then refurbished before distribution.
