Lifeworks Community Computers

Lifeworks Community Computers LCC was started by Mike Gibson to support people on the Autistic Spectrum, by carrying out repairs and upgrades to computers, teaching clients and carers how to use and build them, as well as supplying computers to the members of Lifeworks.

Unfortunately, Lifeworks have had no choice but to close this service due to moving into a much smaller premises.

Most of the equipment in the LCC was donated to The Community Recycling Consortium https://www.crccic.co.uk/ but some of it was sold on to clients or members of the public.
