For 80 years, the charity WaveLength has led the way with delivering change for lonely and isolated people. We help fight loneliness by giving people living in poverty televisions, radios, and tablets. The people we support are lonely because of age, illness or disability, or by circumstances which make it hard for them to leave the house or meet new people.
If you, or someone you know, could benefit from a radio, television, or tablet, take a look at the ‘Apply for Help’ section of our website.
Loneliness affects millions of people across the UK. For people who are lonely, a simple radio or television can feel like a lifeline. We help people who have become lonely through lots of different circumstances. Some of these include: the death of a loved one; illness or injury; disability; homelessness; domestic abuse; becoming a refugee or moving away from friends and family.
TV, radio can bring people together like nothing else. Even when there is no-one else around, they can be a friendly voice in an empty room and a window to the world. Every day we hear stories about how our technology is helping people overcome loneliness. We even have the research to prove it! So, if you know someone who needs our help, apply today. We want to hear from you.
