Get Microsoft programmes, Adobe software and more through the Charity Technology Exchange - UK registered charities and charitable Housing Associations can access up to 10 different software products each year (from a list of over 200 products). There is an admin fee.

Computers for rural people scheme - Individuals clubs, businesses, schools and not for profit organisations in rural areas that need access to information and services, are able to purchase fully functioning ex-government computers for as little as £130. The computers are being made available through the Arthur Rank Centre.
