WaveLength gives TVs and radios to isolated and lonely people living in poverty.
Many live with disability or chronic illness that make it hard to leave their homes. Many are over 75, and many are coming out of difficult situations like homelessness or domestic violence.
They tell us their TVs and radios are ‘lifelines’, keeping them connected to the outside world and comforting them through long days and nights. Our equipment is brand new, and we also provide sets which are accessible for disabled people. The manufacturers we work with take care of installation and delivery, as well as a long-term warranty. We can provide a range of televisions, radios and CD players.
Staring at a blank wall does nobody any good. We open up a window on the world.
WaveLength’s Big Connect Research
Earlier this year we commissioned researchers from the University of York to explore the social, economic and health impacts of our work. They interviewed our beneficiaries from across the country and found that media technology alleviates loneliness, reduces social isolation and helps people to improve their life chances and find new opportunities.
