Founded in March 2020, during the initial outbreak of COVID-19, we have to date outfitted more than 700 homes in the North West and beyond, with digital devices that would have otherwise be wastefully sitting in someone’s attic. In addition, we have also repaired more than 200 devices, free of charge, for families who could not afford to fix their malfunctioning machines.
My Outsourced IT is a community project that aims to improve digital inclusion for people of all ages across the UK, by providing equipment, training, and support to those in need. We do this by collecting hardware donations and funding from those who can spare a device or the money, inviting applications for computers from people who need it, repurposing and repairing the hardware donations, and delivering them to families that require them the most.
By repurposing old hardware, we are also supporting the green mandate.
We believe that ‘Green’ is the way forward and with every computer that’s donated and fixed by us, we are off-setting carbon footprint. A win-win situation indeed! A family in need gets a repurposed device and we get to be a little kinder to the planet. We try to incorporate as much green hardware and offset as much carbon footprint in everything we do, from packages on offer to upgrades and services.
