Digital Wellbeing Tameside and Glossop

Digital Wellbeing Tameside and Glossop is supported by local NHS organisations and a range of other partners and aims to help people who donít have access to technology.  

Local charity PCrefurb are looking for donations of mobile phones, tablets and laptops, that you no longer use, to help people in our communities who are at a disadvantage when it comes to access to technology.  

In addition to refurbishing and redistributing electronic devices, PCrefurb will also provide training to support people to grow their skills and confidence in using devices to for day to day activities that improve their health and wellbeing through, for example:

  • Accessing online information and support 
  • Reducing loneliness by keeping in touch with friends and family 
  • Accessing health services such as GP appointments and repeat prescriptions
  • Accessing online banking and ordering groceries 
  • Undertaking further education 
  • Greater access to employment opportunities and housing
  • Accessing health apps to improve wellbeing or manage long term conditions

If you think you can help, for more information about how your device will be used, the types of devices you can donate, how to delete personal data, and a list of drop off locations across Tameside and Glossop see:
