Our Technology Programme
Technology device donations to schools and children’s organisations
We are ending technology poverty with computer, tablet and other electronics donations
Despite the developments there have been in the technological world, there are still thousands of children around the UK that don’t have access to technology. We understand how vital it is that children are able to use technology to learn online, not solely for their education, but also to communicate with their friends and to learn essential skills that can develop their career prospects in later life.
In order to guarantee that children can have access to the technology they need, we run our Technology Programme. We donate up to 25 electronic items per donation to schools and other children’s organisations that are in need of support and can help children or young people gain access to the technology they need.
How does our Technology Programme work?
We collect technology device donations with our free electronics collection service.
Our team and volunteers refurbish as many devices as they can.
Schools and organisations apply for a technology donation.
Devices are donated via schools and other children’s organisations.
youth clubs, refugee centres and councils

What our benefactors say
Our tablet donation to Queens Park Primary School
We have donated 20 tablets and iPads to the Queens Park Primary School which will be used at the school to aid the children in their studies. This will not only allow teachers to use interactive learning techniques, but also allow the students themselves to use the tablets for homework or further research while gaining essential technology skills.
How our tech donations support schools and other children’s organisations
Little Lives UK has donated 15 laptops to be used in their afterschool homework clubs for children who otherwise wouldn’t be able to complete their online learning due to not having their own technology at home. As part of our Technology Programme, Little Lives UK strive to end technology poverty and ensure that all children who are without the relevant technology for virtual learning and the seemingly ever increasingly virtual world, do have access to the equipment needed.
Little Lives UK has been given the opportunity to support the fantastic cause that is the Salusbury World Refugee Centre in North London. Little Lives UK are pleased to announce the donation of 15 laptops through our Technology Programme for use in Salusbury World Refugee’s afterschool homework club at the Granville Family Well-Being Centre.
The Community Change Company CIC is an organisation based in Newark that helps those in the community who are in need of vital support that so often is not funded or available for everyone. They are piloting a group run by sibling of children with additional needs. The siblings know their brothers and sisters better than anyone and can really help to guide service providers in the right direction when it comes to understanding what is best for them and their family.
Cystic Fibrosis Care
On behalf of Cystic Fibrosis Care we send Little Lives UK an enormous thank you for your exceptional generosity in supporting children and teenagers who suffer with Cystic Fibrosis. By providing these valuable devices you will be helping 14 children to be able to receive home schooling through these tablets and to continue their education through technology which is so vital for their future during these most difficult times in the pandemic. Our charity works to access the care CF patients need to improve the quality of their life and minimise their daily struggle, and we cannot emphasis how grateful we are for your tremendous support.”

Stag Lane Primary School
Thank you so much for your charity’s generosity. You have given us more that we could have dreamed of and each of those devices will mean that another child or children will be able to access the remote home learning we provide during this lockdown (when will it end?). It will mean that a child will no longer be staying up late in order to have their turn to do some learning. It will mean that a child can now do their work using a bigger screen than their parents’ small smart phone. Our families and pupils are truly grateful for what you have given us.”
