Together we can

If the last year has taught us anything, it's that while technology improves our lives, it's the spirit of the people who use it that makes the real difference. We connect people because we're driven by a desire to build a bright future supported by technology - and together we can.

The Great British Tech Appeal

Donate your old phone or tablet to help disadvantaged young people access remote learning, connect with loved ones and stay safe in lockdown.

A message from our CEO

Throughout the pandemic, Vodafone UK has been keeping the UK connected and supporting vulnerable customers, NHS and care workers, and disadvantaged families as best we can.

We've donated 350,000 SIMs with free data to schools, with another 150,000 SIMs available through the Mail Force Computers for Kids initiative.

Through our Great British Tech Appeal, we've distributed around 6,000 smartphones and tablets to families who lack connectivity, with the help of our charity partner Barnardo's.

We've offered unlimited mobile plans for just £10 a month for six months to help job seekers.

And we'll be there to help the UK as we recover from the pandemic, too. 

Take care.
Ahmed Essam, CEO, Vodafone UK
