Connecting the unconnected
WHAT WE DO
Connect the Love supports people who are isolated in care homes, hospitals and vulnerable situations by providing devices to keep them digitally connected to friends, families and loved ones.
COVID-19 highlighted the importance of being digitally connected - not just during a pandemic – but for anyone who is isolated or in a vulnerable situation in the UK.
Tragically, many care home residents, hospital patients and victims of abuse are facing unparalleled loneliness without the means of digital connection that many of us take for granted.
Connect the Love’s mission is to alleviate loneliness, improve mental health and prevent isolation during the pandemic and beyond.
