WaveLength gives radios, televisions, and tablet computers to help people maintain and increase the number of meaningful connections they have in their lives. We support people who are lonely because of age, poor physical or mental health, or by circumstances which make it hard for them to leave their home.
The gift of technology helps bring people together, when seeing people in person can be difficult. Technology offers a valuable window onto the world, breaking the silence which many lonely people live with on a daily basis. Our research with the University of York shows that it helps people to feel less lonely, happier, and healthier too.
