WaveLength is a charity that works to alleviate loneliness across the UK. We give technology to people who are lonely and living in poverty to help them reconnect with the world. We support people with a wide range of different needs. These include illness, disability, old age, domestic abuse, homelessness, refugees, and many more.
Our beneficiaries tell us their TVs, radios, and tablets are ‘lifelines’. They connect them to the outside world, and comfort them through long days and lonely nights. And research from the University of York confirms these benefits.
In 2018, we helped over 12,000 people overcome loneliness. If you’d like to help us in our fight against loneliness, please get involved here.
