National databank

Free mobile data

Telford & Wrekin Council are able to provide residents with free mobile data, texts and calls via a sim card to people in need via The UK National Databank, powered by Good Things Foundation and its partners Virgin Media O2, Vodafone and Three. Think of it like a ‘food bank’ but for internet connectivity data.’

For someone to be eligible to receive one of the sims, they must:

  • be 18+ years old 
  • and be from a low income household.

And qualify in one or several of the following statements: 

  • has no access or insufficient access to the internet at home
  • and/or has no or insufficient access to the internet when away from the home 
  • and/or cannot afford their existing monthly contract or top up.

More information coming soon!
