Refurbished Computers For Charities


“We set-out and have achieved a process for charities that instead of costing them money, earns them money from hardware they can no longer use. In this way, we offer our services to support them and their work”.

- Bill Champness, Founder of Hardware Associates

At Hardware Associates we are specialists in supplying refurbished, budget friendly laptops, tablets and desktop computers to charities across the UK, as well as servers, spares and accessories including audio equipment.

Over more than 20 years we are proud to have equipped many charitable organisations with the IT requirements they need to succeed, at excellent value for money. We have achieved costs of up to 80% less than buying brand new PCs and laptops, and also remove and resell redundant IT from charities as they upgrade.

Whatever your organisation’s sector, we’re available to help. Browse our range online including popular Apple and Dell models, and call us on 01428 707900 Mon-Fri 9am-5.30pm to discuss your needs, or complete our online form during weekends. We can then create a bespoke solution for your charity.

Our process for computers for charities

Whilst we tailor our services to each charity that we work with, you can expect the following from our expert and friendly team when you get in touch:

As a team we have worked with the NSPCC since 2017 across their UK sites. In the first two years we were able to turn their redundant IT assets into £18,000, which we donated back to the charity, including sponsorship to Shaun Gregory, one of the trustees, who raised a total of £54,000 running the London Marathon.

You can read more about our work with the charity in our NSPCC case study, which goes into detail about the importance of stringent data checks during the refurbishment process to protect sensitive data, which is absolutely essential.

High performance computers for the charity sector

Charities require reliable IT solutions the same as every other sector, and refurbished PCs and laptops are the perfect solution when great value for money is required. Our refurbished IT secures you excellent pricing alongside maximum efficiency meaning you get more for less.

At Hardware Associates, budget-friendly computers are of the highest quality with modern specifications and fast performance, meaning you can concentrate on your organisation's work with IT that will help you reach your goals.

We have over 20 years of experience

Free one year warranty included

We offer a free 12 month warranty on all refurbished IT to charities, giving you peace of mind that each device is high quality and will perform well for you.

Tailored, budget conscious approach

Our approach is to save you money and offer you better value for money when it comes to your IT. We are proud to support charities with our services and will also do as much as we can to help you meet your goals, all within budget.
