Hello Monks Cross, York! 

Our new hub is now open at Monks Cross Drive 

Pop in and say hi at our Monks Cross Drive Hub! 

We're delighted to have opened our first Hub space at Monks Cross, York. Located just behind Monks Cross Shopping Park, our hub is home to multiple services run by the Keeping Digital Foundation. 
 
Opened in March 2024, the hub was a new initiative by the organisation to turn unused business park units into spaces where we can better help our local communities. Our Monks Cross Hub operates as a main hub to the Keeping Digital Foundation and Gwiddle, whilst also taking on more face-to-face work compared to our Bootham registered office.  
 
Our Monks Cross Hub is also the first location that accepts the donation of your old digital devices, which can then be refurbished to benefit your local community, or recycled where this is not possible.  
 
Every Saturday, we are opening our hub to the public, where people can get face-to-face support with a volunteer at one of our desks, or chat digital on our green Keeping Digital sofa. 
 
Our hub comes with free customer parking - just pull into The Storage Team and you'll find us located towards the back of the car park. We can't wait to see you! 
 
Address: Keeping Digital Foundation, Monks Cross Drive, Huntington, York, YO32 9GZ (next door to The Storage Team)

Device donation hours:
