We’re working with local company Byteback to recondition decommissioned Bristol City Council computers and give them a new lease of life in helping people own a computer and learn digital skills.  The scheme offers reconditioned equipment at low cost to individuals and families who are on a low incomes or who experience other disadvantages.  Community groups and facilities are also benefitting from this scheme with low cost deals to set up IT training suites and access support.

The scheme has already helped more than 2,000 households and has also installed 15 IT training suites to a range of organisations from Eastville Park Methodist Church to charities such as Borderlands South West Ltd.

The scheme makes available a full range of desktop PCs, laptops, monitors and other reconditioned equipment, along with low cost support packages .  Equipment is offered at a range of different price points (from as little as £50) to help as many people and organisations as possible access a computer.  Find out more.

We want Bristol to be a truly inclusive and connected digital city where anyone who wants a computer at home can have one.
