Your unwanted tools


We want your unwanted tools and equipment

What Tools can you Donate?

From Friday, 20th March we are very sorry that the workshop is not open, we are following government advice to keep everyone as safe as possible, so we are not accepting donations of tools and equipment at present.  We will update this message with any further developments. If you need to contact Workaid, please email or phone 01494 775220

We rely wholly on your unwanted tools and equipment donations and accept a very wide range even if they are vintage or antique. General hand tools are fantastic whether carpentry, horticultural, electrical and engineering but bigger machines such as welding and milling machines are welcome. Knitting and sewing machines and general haberdashery items are in high demand. Click the Accepted Items button below for a complete list.

Proof is in our success stories. Sammy aged 18 completed a course in Electrical Installation and was able to use the tools donated by Workaid to the Ebusiralo Polytechnic. Beatrice a disabled mum from Zambia trained in tailoring using our donated sewing machines and has gone on to run her own business and become a trainer herself.
