In partnership with Carphone Warehouse
Connecting young people to help since 1999

At Carphone Warehouse we have always been about connecting people, helping them realise what's possible in their life.

That's why we're delighted to support our chosen charity partner, Get Connected, the UK's free confidential helpline for children and young people. They connect young people to the help they need, 365 days a year, and offer support in overcoming any problem.

We've had the privilege of working with Get Connected for 12 years and are an extremely proud of this award-winning partnership. Our support has made it possible for 400,000 vulnerable young people to get help.
