We are seeking donations of laptops up to 12 years old and phones up to 6 years old for arriving Ukrainian refugees.
Current estimates are that 1500 Ukrainian refugees including 600 children will be arriving in Oxfordshire in the coming weeks. As well as continuing to support others in need across our community, we are working hard to help newly-arrived refugees stay connected at this incredibly difficult time. We are working closely with local charities such as Asylum Welcome and Refugee Resource and community services across the county, and are happy to hear from any new local groups supporting hosts.
Find your local hub to make an individual donation, or contact us to discuss collections for your work or local community (there are a couple of essential details to get right for group collections to work, ensuring devices can be used).
If you are supporting arriving refugees, or anyone else in the community who is digitally excluded, please do get in touch and we would be delighted to help with devices, support and connectivity.
Thank you very much from everyone on the Getting Oxfordshire Online team.
