How your old phone could help a domestic abuse survivor

24 January 2018

A domestic abuse service in Plymouth is encouraging people to donate their old phones to survivors who left everything behind to escape harmful relationships.

Donated handsets can be handed in to PDAS’ office on Prideaux Court.

Sanctuary Supported Living’s (SSL) Plymouth Domestic Abuse Service (PDAS) is calling for donations of old handsets and new SIM cards to help its clients get connected again when they start receiving support.

SSL local service manager Katy Fisher said: “When people escape an abusive relationship – be it partner, family or otherwise – they often have to leave their personal possessions behind.

“Without a phone, this can leave them cut off from the world, so we’d ask anyone with a handset they no longer use to consider donating it and help someone in a difficult situation to get back on their feet.”
