Tim's Spotlight on Loneliness
Fundraising for WaveLength Charity Ltd
Each year, thousands of people across the UK become socially isolated through circumstances beyond their control. And loneliness doesn't just make people feel sad - it increases the risk of cardiovascular disease, dementia, obesity and depression. WaveLength provides media technology to lonely or socially isolated people living in poverty. A simple radio, TV or tablet computer can build friendships and improve lives. We help sick, elderly, disabled and homeless people, refugees and survivors of domestic abuse to reconnect with the world.
