Fuller details and pricing are on Website: Arthur Rank Centre – computers for Rural people

This scheme makes computers available at extra-low charity prices; if you live or work in a rural area we can supply a fully functioning computer for as little as £130.

  • Internet-ready laptops and desktops with pre-installed Microsoft software
  • Order and pay by phone or by post
  • Free delivery (UK mainland)
  • Individuals, schools, businesses, community groups… all qualify!

Email and the internet provide enormous opportunities for those who find it difficult to get out and about, especially when the shops, library or bank are 10 miles away. Yet computers can be expensive, and few people want to buy one just to see if it might be useful.

Germinate: The Arthur Rank Centre, in partnership with two other charities, started Computers for Rural People to provide rural communities, individuals and groups with high quality, fully-refurbished second-hand computers at very low cost to encourage people to take the first step.

So if you think a computer might be useful we can help you.  At a really low price we can provide a computer of your own, pre-loaded with Microsoft software and delivered to your door with 3 months warranty, to get you started. You may find similar prices advertised for new machines, but these are special light-duty computers, and often without software.  Our computers are commercial duty machines, fully refurbished and fitted with a complete suite of software; and delivered to your door.
