Help Afghan refugees through the Great British Tech Appeal

Barnardo's needs your old devices to provide young Afghan refugees and their families with the connectivity they need to survive and thrive.

Vodafone UK and charity partner Barnardo's issued a new plea to the public and businesses across the UK to donate unwanted smartphones and tablets to 'The Great British Tech Appeal' specifically to help refugees arriving from Afghanistan.

Vodafone will add six months' free data, calls and texts and work with Barnardo's to get devices to Afghan young people and their families who've recently arrived in the UK. This will help them access vital support, mental health services and healthcare as well as stay in touch with friends and family in the UK. Donating tech is simple, fast and free of charge.

The UK Government has committed to take in 20,000 Afghan refugees, with 5,000 expected within the first year. Barnardo’s has reported a tenfold increase in families and young people waiting for devices and connectivity in recent weeks. In addition to government support, the devices will enable refugees to access Barnardo’s free and confidential helpline and webchat (BOLOH) for children and families from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities. The helpline will provide specialist support and practical advice to help young refugees adjust to their new lives in the UK and deal with the emotional impact of their experiences.

Vodafone and Barnardo's launched The Great British Tech Appeal in May 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. To date the campaign has given devices and connectivity to 7,000 disadvantaged young people, enabling them to access education and essential services, and stay in touch with friends and family. The appeal remains open for donations, supported by a national campaign in partnership with Global Radio.

Charities working to support refugees from Afghanistan can also apply for free connectivity via Vodafone's charities.connected initiative. This offers any registered charity in the UK the opportunity to apply for free connectivity to improve its digital capability, extend its services or help the individuals and families it supports to get online. In the month since the initiative launched, nearly 20 organisations that work to support refugees have applied. Registered charities can apply for the free connectivity, in the form of SIM cards with 20GB data, plus free calls and texts every month for six months.
