Pre-loved mobility equipment 

Grace Cares is a not-for-profit organisation which has been set up to support older people, their families and care workers across the UK.

The team collects, donates, and sells pre-loved care equipment to enhance people’s quality of life, support care workers and older people in need with grants and community groups and leave a better planet for future generations.

Grace Cares also holds monthly tea parties for the over 70’s which provide vital, life-enhancing social connections for older people at a time in their lives when their social circles are diminishing.

Help to get online

If you, or someone you know, can’t get online because you/they can’t afford a laptop or tablet, you/they may be eligible for support from Staffordshire’s Donate IT scheme.  

The scheme refurbishes devices donated by local residents and supplies them to residents who need help to get online to apply for jobs, access health appointments or attend training.  

Ask at a Staffordshire library or Community Help Point about the scheme or contact Support Staffordshire or The Community Foundation for Staffordshire
