A gift from you could support a lonely person, or a busy refuge or hostel, for many years.

Woman with tablets from WaveLengthEvery day, over 15,000 people across the UK use a WaveLength television, radio, or tablet to connect to the world. They help:

– Grow friendship networks
– Improve mental health and
– Build new lives.

And it’s all thanks to our donors. WaveLength does not receive any government funding or grants. Public donations allow us to support:

– people who are lonely and
– community organisations that bring isolated people together.

We rely on the generosity of our supporters to keep alleviating loneliness across the UK. You can donate:

Gifts in your will

Many people like to know that after they’ve died, they will still be helping lonely and vulnerable people.

Since 1939, technology has changed completely. Where we used to give “wirelesses,” we now give people radios and Smart TVs. No-one knows for sure how technology will change in 80 more years. But WaveLength will always use our supporters’ generous donations to make sure no-one is left behind because of poverty and isolation.

If you’d like to leave us a legacy of any size, you can add a codicil to the terms of your current will without making a new one. Or if you’re making your first will, simply write WaveLength in as a legatee.

We advise you to contact a solicitor about leaving a legacy in your will. But if you’d like an informal chat about leaving a gift to us, you can always call 01708 621 101 or 0800 0182137 (Freephone) or email
