Our central Oxford hub is based at Aspire, close to the railway station. The main focus of the hubs is on wiping securely and refurbishing laptops, tablets and phones that have been donated by businesses or members of the public.

How to wipe a digital device

We wipe all devices that are given to us to a high level of security. However, there are some steps we advise you to take before bringing your device to us. Remember to save any files or photos that you may want in the future, as these will no longer be available after the device has been wiped. For detailed information about how to wipe your data from your device before donating it, please see our downloadable guidance documents below.
