keep croydon
connected

Now more than ever we understand the need to be connected to our family and friends. For many this is a lifeline and so Go2Games and Croydon Commitment have joined together to ask local businesses to support our Keep Croydon Connected project.

We are asking for donations in the form of laptops/chrome books and mobile android devices (mobile phone/tablet). The devices need to be in working order and reset before being donated. We will replace the laptop hard drives to ensure that there is no personal information on them. If you also have a charger please include that too. Once received, Go2Games will make them available to local community groups via Croydon Commitment.

Please promote to your staff and associates. All devices will go to charities working with socially isolated elderly people, younger people requiring counselling and school children needing laptops or chrome books who do not qualify for the Department for Education (DfE) scheme. The Government is encouraging children to access on-line learning. However, in Croydon there are a number of families who do not have access to IT.

data safeguarding

Data protection is very important to us! A "Data Safeguarding Information pack" will be sent to you when you register your interest. this will help ensure your data has been completely removed from the device you donate.
