Winter wishes from WaveLength

As we move closer to Christmas, we’d like to thank all of our supporters this year and reflect on our work fighting loneliness in our 80th year.

Our headline figures for the year: we’ve supported over 300 new people through our individual application and just under 4,000 people through our group application. Those are the numbers, but who are the people we’ve helped?

One of them is a woman called Shelley, who lost her family in a car accident and suffers from a range of health problems after the crash. The gift of a tablet has helped Shelley connect with the world around her again, making her excited about all the things she can do on her tablet computer. 

We’ve given televisions to homeless hostels and women’s refuges, such as Choice Domestic Abuse Service. Jackie Hyland, Operations Manager told us how a television helps bring women together during a stressful time after fleeing abuse. You can watch more interviews with the people we’ve helped here.

If you have a spare few moments over the Christmas period, do take a look at our InTune publication. This summarises all of the work we’ve done in our 80th year. We rely entirely on donations – so anything you’re able to give this Christmas time will make such a difference.

From the team at WaveLength, we wish you a Merry Christmas and a happy 2020.
