WaveLength provides televisions and radios for isolated and lonely people, at no cost to the recipient. In some exceptional cases, they can also help cover the costs of a TV licence or aerial for beneficiaries who don't already have one. WaveLength takes care of all installation and delivery (although beneficiaries should retune and maintain their sets). Recently, we have also started providing tablet computers.
Beneficiaries cover a wide spectrum, but are all living in poverty and suffer from loneliness and isolation - either because of physical or mental impairment, or because of distressing circumstances like domestic violence, homelessness or leaving care.
Beneficiaries must be referred by a non-related third party, such as a care, social, housing or medical worker, a community or religious leader, or simply a concerned neighbour.
We also work with other charities and organisations to provide communal equipment.
