The National Device Bank
Good Things Foundation
The National Device Bank is an initiative set up by Good Things Foundation to tackle digital exclusion by giving free refurbished devices to people in need. The National Device Bank is an alternative solution to IT asset disposal that tackles corporate e-waste and gets refurbished devices into the hands of people that can't afford their own. We have built a national hub that can take large donations of used digital devices from organisations in any sector, recycle or refurbish these, and distribute them to people without home internet access through our National Digital Inclusion Network. The National Device Bank is the sustainable solution to digital exclusion that helps people and the planet.
Send less to landfill and more to a good cause
A Good Thing CIC
A Good Thing CIC is an online platform that connects charities right across the UK with businesses that have things to give away. Meaning less to landfill, and more to a good cause. Absolutely anything can be given away via our digital platform, and organisations of all sizes and types are eligible to join. Charities are 'matched' with businesses via the app, and then make arrangements between each other for the charity to collect the items.
Wiltshire Digital Drive
Wiltshire Digital Drive (WDD) is a purpose-driven Community Interest Company (CIC), committed to bridging the digital divide, encouraging inclusion and achieving real social impact. Schools, charities, not-for-profit organisations, councils and families have all directly benefitted from WDD’s purpose-led activities — we have encouraged businesses and individuals to think differently about technology and e-waste.
With the digital divide being a huge societal issue that is largely overlooked, the dedication of WDD’s team of volunteers, combined with over 600 hours of pro-bono support to date from founding member Naturally Social and partners, has led to almost 3,000 devices being refurbished and redistributed since 2020 while simultaneously reducing landfill waste and resultant CO2 emissions locally.
WDD is fully focused on extending the life cycle of technology for as long as possible, with any tech unable to be refurbished or redistributed being responsibly recycled and contributing to the circular economy.
