Since the beginning of the pandemic, we’ve donated over £3,000,000 worth of devices and connectivity to causes and communities supporting the vulnerable and disadvantaged. We’ve helped over 4,000 charities and community initiatives, and donated more than 27,000 devices and more than 28,000 data-loaded SIMs. Through the first six months of donations, we found that nearly 40% were going to causes combatting homelessness, which led to our partnership with Crisis.
COVID-19 has shown us that, now more than ever, mobile connection brings us closer to other people – to society – and provides access to essential services. For many, a digital connection can be a lifeline, and right now there’s a lack of awareness and understanding about why connectivity is so important for people facing homelessness. Together with Crisis and the many frontline services combatting homelessness, we hope to end homelessness once and for all.
