Homeless Mobile Phones

I've been reporting on a new scheme where homeless people in Rotherham are being given mobile phones and tablets to help them stay in touch with support services while their drop-in centre is closed because of lockdown. The NHS has funded forty rough sleepers being given the devices to help ward off isolation. One homeless man told me the phone has been a life saver.

  1. What a very good idea - which can be judged by the fact that no phone has been sold - they are all used to keep in touch and to access info to help homeless people's physical condition and give emotional support.Iit benefits the giver and the receiver as the volunteer explained.
