Helping the homeless feel less isolated by giving them gift of connectivity and data

As Londoners continue to struggle with the cost of living crisis, new research shows people are considering going without mobile data to pay other bills.

Well, in response Virgin Media 02 and a number of charities are rolling out free data banks to allow people to feel more connected.

They’re working with the charity Driving for Change, who support people experiencing or are at risk of homelessness.

They have a number of buses where people can access NHS heath support, free haircuts, even dentistry and now this free data.

London Live’s Tanya Francis has been learning more about the importance of connectivity for those who are struggling.

If you’d like to find out more or make a donation to charity then Driving For Change, Crisis and Good Things Foundation are the organisations involved.
