Affordable devices for Online Centres

Good Things Foundation is happy to be working with two organisations - Computer Aid and Computer Recyclers UK - to make high quality, low-cost computer equipment available to the Online Centres Network and its learners.

Computer Aid

Members of the Online Centres Network, and their learners can now purchase refurbished desktop computers from as little as £85 and laptops from £115 (both inc. VAT) plus a delivery fee. You can find more technical specifications below.

The process of buying the equipment is quick and simple:

  • A member of staff from an Online Centre (eg. you) calls 0208 361 5540 to place an order with Computer Aid - whether for the centre itself, or on behalf of a learner. You must quote your Online Centres Network ID number to be eligible for this offer.
  • Computer Aid will fulfil the order and distribute to the customer within 1 calendar month of payment being received.
  • Computer Aid will check the customer has received their order and make sure everything is as expected.

We’re really proud of this partnership, and believe this is a great opportunity for Online Centres  Network to extend the support they can provide, helping people gain both basic digital skills and access to technology at home. If you'd like to promote this opportunity in your centre, you can do so with this leaflet
