Welcomm Communications, have teamed up with Nokia to donate 10 new Nokia T20 tablets to Combat Stress to equip more veterans with the technology they need to access vital online therapy programmes.
Robert Marsh, Director of Fundraising at Combat Stress said: “Since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, we have been delivering our specialist services to veterans online. There are some veterans who struggle to access our digital services though, due to either limited or no access to the internet, so we are providing free tablets to them. However, with our limited financial resources this is not something we can do alone.
“With the fantastic new tablets that Welcomm has secured for us through their partner Nokia Mobile, we can now reach out, engage with, and assist even more veterans, enabling them to access vital online therapy programmes and even wider connectivity to family and friends who they may be isolated from.
“We are extremely grateful to Welcomm Communications for their continued support. Through donations like this, we are able to continue delivering our life-changing services to veterans across the UK and help them to rebuild their lives.”
Welcomm Communications’ Financial Director, Chris Ruddle said: “A veteran-owned business ourselves, we are thrilled to be able to work so closely with Combat Stress. As the charity’s technology partner and thanks to the generous support of our partners, including Nokia Mobile, we are proud to have connected thousands of people throughout the pandemic.
“Hearing about the difference this technology will make to ex-servicemen and women is incredible –the services and support that Combat Stress offers is truly life-changing”.
