Charity description

Pass IT On logo
Pass IT On is an Edinburgh charity that individually adapts donated computer equipment and gives it to disabled people and those with long-term health conditions who live in the EH postcode area. 

We provide supported volunteering opportunities in our workshop for people who have extra support needs and also sell surplus refurbished computer equipment at low cost to people and organisations in our local community.

We believe that being able to use a computer is central to modern life, and that equality of access is essential for a fair society.

Our work supports people who would otherwise be unable to access the benefits of modern computer systems.

Publicly available computers such as those in libraries often lack the special keyboards and modifications required for use by people with disabilities. Disabled people themselves might not know what adaptations are available, or may find them impossibly expensive.

The benefits which computers bring are especially valuable for disabled people; increased opportunities for communication, social networking and support, education, shopping, entertainment and employment.

Disabled people are now more likely to be living alone and are often financially disadvantaged, Pass IT On bridges this gap; ensuring that the benefits of computers are accessible to all.

Charity No: SC033560
