Donate phones or tablets in any condition
If you have an old phone or tablet lying around the house, we can help put it to good use. Send it our way using our free prepaid postage label and help us to help disadvantaged children across the UK.
Mobile phone recycling with Little Lives UK has a direct impact on the children we support. Where possible devices are passed directly to children who need them through our Technology Programme.
When this is not possible devices are resold and 100% of the money made goes towards funding our campaigns which help disabled and disadvantaged children thrive. This allows us to reach a vast number of families, supplying them with devices that we hope will make a huge difference to their everyday lives.

What happens to my device after I donate them?
Where appropriate your device will be passed directly to the children who we support with our technology campaign. Any donations which cannot be passed on directly are sold on, the money from this sale is then used to fund our campaigns supporting disabled and disadvantaged children in the UK.
Can I drop off my donation of mobile phones and tablets?
Donations can be dropped into any of our three charity shops across London.
Is all my data safely removed?
We ask that all phones and tablets are restored to factory settings to remove data before they are posted to us. If you are unable to do this, we can do so on your behalf. Simply let us know by leaving a note with your contact details in the parcel with your device.
