WaveLength is an 80-year-old charity that fights loneliness across the UK by giving radios, televisions, and tablet computers to those who are lonely and living in poverty. The people who WaveLength support are lonely because of age, illness or impairment, or by circumstances which make it hard for them to leave the home or meet new people. Alongside supporting individual applications, WaveLength works with hundreds of organisations around the country, including domestic violence refuges, young care leavers, homeless hostels, hospital wards, and day-care centres.
To apply for a piece of technology, visit our website, read the guidance notes and download an application form. To qualify for WaveLength’s help, people must be referred by a third party, known as a referrer. This can be a friend or neighbour, social worker, care worker, medical worker, housing officer, charity worker, volunteer, a member of a religious or community organisation.
