WaveLength gives TVs and radios to isolated and lonely people living in poverty.
WaveLength also gives TVs, radios and occasionally tablet computers to centres including refuges for domestic violence victims, local and national homelessness hostels, and independent medical units. Media technology gives structure to days spent in institutions, and helps residents feel independent and comforted.
Often, when residents leave for homes of their own, a WaveLength TV or radio goes with them as one of the few furnishings in their new lives.
WaveLength lobbies the government to make sure vulnerable people’s needs are considered in media and entertainment. Our CEO is a member of various forums and advisory groups and we played a key part in the Help Scheme for the TV Digital Switchover. WaveLength’s advocacy has one goal: to stop unnecessary loneliness affecting people who already have too much to cope with.
