You are visitor number:

We have been a Registered Charity for over 15 years and still the only Computer Charity that do what we do and the way we do it. We are unique as a Charity and for the last 10 years we have managed to pay the bills and weekly running costs ourselves by using our own DLA, DSS and Mobility money, unlike many other charities where people are paid.  Many times over the last 10 years our Chairman Paul Harris has used his own money to pay CFTD bills so not to let the Charity go under. We have able bodied staff that do a full days work and then find time to help disabled people until the late hours of the night. That's dedication and the most impressive thing about it all is that no one involved with CFTD takes a penny in wages and at times put their own personal money in to pay bills as well. Find another Charity in the UK that does this and you will be searching forever.

No one involved with CFTD takes nothing from anyone. We all work from the heart and not from the pocket. We have NO paid Managers and NO paid staff, not like other charities I will not name who register as charities but all take a full wage which we feel is not right as donations given from the heart we now know is being used to pay big wage bills and we cannot see how the word charity or volunteers can be used. Our thoughts are that if a donation is received it should all be used only to help others and not to line pockets as genuine volunteers are people that do things from the heart, it doesn’t make sense to us that nice people give money to many charities and these charities use the money they collect in to pay themselves high wages and they also pay their staff huge wages, they all run prestige cars and have regular Caribbean holidays. Strange that people send money to these charities when most of it lines the staff and volunteer’s pockets. We can stand up and say “NOT US”

Our mission is to help disabled people, communicate and participate, in day-to-day activities most people take for granted.  We do this by recycling computers, giving disabled people an alternative means of keeping in touch. 

Our committee members and all dedicated volunteers offer their services and time for free.  We have supplied over 2300 computers in 15 years to both individuals and organisations and have helped over 1000 people with advice and help.  We rely heavily on our team of dedicated volunteers who help in various ways, for example, collecting donated computers and rebuilding or repairing them.  Without them, we would not have been able to supply this number of PCs.  We rely heavily on donations and any received go directly to providing PCs to our disabled customers. 

We suppy Internet ready Multimedia PC's using new and second-hand parts, for distribution throughout the UK.  We specialise in supplying the disabled home user including those with learning disabilities, the housebound, elderly and many other agencies, organisations and charities that help the disabled.  We have worked closely with both social services and other Government departments.  We also offer free PC advice on best buys, where and what to buy and what to avoid.

All we ask from you is to cover any costs, if any, that our Charity has spent out when building a PC for you. We don't want anything extra from you and we will not put any money on the original cost. What it costs us is what it costs you its as simple as that. 

A WORD ON FUNDRAISING

Our aim is to supply PCs to the disabled and housebound including those centres, clubs, schools and other organisations that serve the disabled.  Many of those with disabilities are on extremely low incomes and cannot afford to purchase a new PC - they call on us for assistance, but we can only operate with your generosity. 

 We receive donations of complete PC systems, as well as parts, which enable us to improve older systems.  Donations of laptops are excellent for those in confined living accommodation and these are desperately needed.  We also seek monetary donations to help us with our running costs.  If you are able to help in any way, please click here.
