As part of Vodafone’s commitment to tackle digital exclusion and connect one million people by the end of 2022, they recently launched charities.connected. This initiative gives any charity in the UK the opportunity to apply for free connectivity to help the individuals and families it supports get online or to improve its own digital capability.
The connectivity, in the form of SIM cards offering 20GB of data plus free calls and texts every month for six months, will work in any SIM-enabled device (a phone, tablet, laptop, MiFi or dongle).
Registered charities of any size can apply by completing a simple online application form (found here). Applications are open until 1 November 2022 and I am encouraging local charities to apply.
