OAPA partners with DSA Connect to raise funds for charity

25th May 2022 - 05:00
Only A Pavement Away (OAPA) has joined forces with DSA Connect to urge hospitality businesses to recycle their redundant IT equipment to help raise vital funds and support people facing homelessness into work.

OAPA is a UK charity dedicated to helping those facing homelessness, prison leavers and veterans find careers in the hospitality sector.

The duo are calling on businesses to donate their redundant IT equipment to help raise money for the charity. Many businesses and organisations can find themselves with redundant IT and telecoms equipment.

Greg Mangham, founder of OAPA, said: “We’re committed to working with prison leavers to give them the additional support they need to find work on the outside, and helping the hospitality sector to give someone a life chance and potentially, grow new talent. This partnership offers the perfect opportunity for the hospitality sector to safely recycle redundant IT equipment while helping to raise money for Only A Pavement Away and supporting the IT Prison Workshop Initiative.”

Once the data has been securely removed from all items by DSA Connect, the items are then either refurbished, upgraded or recycled under the guidance of DSA Connect. Once sold, DSA Connect donates 50% of all sales income to Only A Pavement Away and no charges are made to the charity.

To enquire about donating your redundant IT equipment to support Only A Pavement Away please contact who can arrange a collection. Please mention that you wish to donate to Only A Pavement Away.
